"The agency received information last November 2023 about the entry of these vehicles without going through regular customs clearance. These vehicles were also being openly advertised in online markets and various social media sites," Uy said in a statement

"And subsequently, on November 28, 2023, our Management Information System Technical Group (MISTG) confirmed that the motor vehicles do not have any import documents,” he added.

BOC-CIIS director Verne Enciso said that the public can report sightings of the said vehicle at the Intelligence Group of the BoC or to BOC Cares portal.
