Luxury car among 121 vehicles that have not returned to Langkawi

ALOR SETAR: The owner of a Lamborghini car bought in duty-free Langkawi drove out of the island some five years ago and has not returned to the island with the car since then.

Kedah Customs Department director Datuk Abd Aziz Abdul Latif said the car was among 121 vehicles registered in Langkawi that the department was looking for, some since 2004.

He said the department was now working with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to locate these cars that are only allowed to enter the mainland for 90 days per year.

“Last year, the department imposed a RM5,000 compound on an owner of a Porsche that was registered in Langkawi,” he said, adding that the car was found in Kuala Lumpur.

He said the other cars sought included several Mercedes, BMWs, Japanese models and local cars.

He said the owners were those who had worked in Langkawi and bought the vehicles in the duty-free island.

“The owners come from all over the peninsula,” he told a press conference here yesterday after the handing over of duties ceremony between him and former state Customs Department director Datuk Saadon Md Dros.

Saadon is now the Kuala Lumpur Customs Department director while Abd Aziz was previously the Perak Customs Department deputy director.

Abd Aziz said those who wish to take the vehicles to the mainland permanently have to pay tax.

ALOR SETAR: The Langkawi- registered Lamborghini taken out of the island beyond the 90-day limit has been located – it was “stranded” at a workshop in Kuala Lumpur.

State Customs Department director Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Latif said the department would impound the car within the week and take it back to the island.

“We have traced the car but do not know why it is there. The owner has yet to contact us,” he said.

It was reported that the Lamborghini was driven out of the duty-free island in November last year.

It was among the 121 cases of vehicles that had been taken out of the island and not returned since 2004.

Abdul Aziz had said the owner was traced through the National Registration Department.
