New suitcase scanner for airport

A new ‘suitcase scanner’ is to be installed at the Cheddi

Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Timehri according to the Guyana Revenue Authority.

A statement from the GRA quoted Commissioner-General Khurshid Sattaur as saying that the scanner has already been procured.

The statement added that though different in nature, the X-Ray Scanner which targets imports will complement the existing scanner which scans the export of containerized cargo, particularly those destined for the

United States of America.

“This one will be for small packages-mainly for suitcase traders and commercial goods brought in suitcases,” the Commissioner-General explained, saying that lots of persons try to deceive Customs at the Airport by concealing commercial items in their suitcases.

The GRA said that the scanner is expected to enhance revenue collection by detecting these items.
