By Kiana WilburgA state of the art scanner will be put into operation in the coming weeks by the Guyana Revenue Authority as it seeks to reduce the amount of drugs and illegal imports that have been slipping through the crevices of the system.Commissioner General of Guyana Revenue Authority, Khurshid SattaurOn Wednesday last, GRA’s Commissioner General, Mr. Khurshid Sattaur offloaded the new scanner from the John Fernandes Wharf.The scanner which is worth about $800 million was donated to Guyana earlier this year by the Chinese Government.Speaking with this publication, Sattaur said that it is the most modern scanner available on the international market.He explained that the mobile scanner which will be transported by a Volvo truck is designed to inspect a container within one minute and is manufactured by the Chinese firm –NUTECH, which uses the latest technology in x-ray imaging.The new equipment is the latest method being employed by the GRA in an effort to strengthen its enforcement activities and enhance its export surveillance ability.Two other scanners are currently in use aimed at effectively combating tax evasion,Richard Wright Manchester City Jersey UK, as well as providing helpful data on illegal substances such as narcotics stashed in containers and suitcases.Since the implementation of the first scanner in 2011,Antoine Griezmann Jersey, there have been a number of charges. Persons were placed before the court for trying to smuggle illegal substances in the country concealed in shipments of lumber, fruits such as star apples, and even in vegetables such as pumpkins.Despite having some amount of success, drugs continue to pass under the radar.As recent as Tuesday last, the Western Naval command apprehended a Guyanese vessel carrying 21 bags of an illegal substance,NFL Jerseys China Cheap, suspected to be cocaine. The ship was travelling from Guyana, when it was detained and escorted by Ghana Naval Ship,http://www.airmaxfantasy.us.com/Gel-Lyte-V-Asics/, Yaa Asantewaa, to the Sekondi Naval Base. The accused persons,Jason Williams Magic Jersey, together with the substances,Detroit Tigers Jerseys, were flown to Accra and handed over to the National Security and the Narcotics Control Board for investigations.The crew comprised four Guyanese and one Ghanaian.Sattaur said it is unfortunate when such incidents occur, but maintains that the new scanner will significantly boost the system and his sector will “continue to forge ahead in its efforts to ensure that no one slips through the proverbial cracks.”He asserted that the machine will be used for the scanning of containers entering and leaving the local ports, and will enhance the Revenue Authority’s security programme for the protection of cargo.The machine also utilizes cutting-edge technology and will be used primarily for scanning high-density products including frozen and refrigerated cargo.Further, the Mobile Container/Vehicle Inspection System is very fitting for the examination of fully loaded containers, vehicles or stationary objects.According to the Tax Chief, its flexibility and fast feedback are suited for surprise inspections at frontiers and ports.With its high quality scanning images and powerful software tools, Sattaur says inspectors would be able to quickly discern any contraband concealed in containers without having to open them.The systems manufactured by NUCTECH are being utilized in more than 20 countries and districts, the Commissioner General said.
