“The implementation of the Program of Verification and Conformity of Merchandises is suspended until the signature of a new agreement with the General Society of Surveillance,” the AGD writes in a note.
AGD didn’t specify the detailed reason why the program of verification is suspended.
Customs officials found firearms, bullets and flashlights in a cargo shipment in Cap Haitien on Thursday.
