Minister Imbert also in response to Customs and Excise statement on the waiver of taxes on such items said “apparently, the Customs & Excise logo was used unlawfully today to circulate an inaccurate statement about taxes on computers, falsely claiming that the Ministry of Trade must be involved to legitimise any waiver of taxes. This is engaging the attention of the authorities.”
