More illegally imported goods are set to be burnt by the Customs Division of the GRA in the coming weeks.

Collection Officer at the State Warehouse, Lawrence Annang, said the division is waiting on clearance from the Commissioner General of the Customs Division of the GRA to take its next step.

He told the media that the impounded goods are prohibited from entering the country as per the state laws.

Mr. Annang cited the Legislative Instrument (LI) 1580 which was promulgated in 1994 to that effect.
