The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) on Tuesday arrested owner of Intertrade Agency, Mohamed Rafik Amad, for allegedly using false customs documents to externalise funds worth over US$1.4 million.
MRA Deputy Director of Corporate Affairs Steven Kapoloma said on two separate occasions, Amad presented false customs documents to banks for remittance of forex valued at US$720,000 and US$768,000 to Hong Kong.
On each occasion, Kapoloma said Amad justified the remittance as pre-clearance to import cotton seed but that the importations were never made. He said Amad faked documents to deceive banks, contrary to the Customs and Excise Act.
