THE Commissioner of Customs and Excise duty at the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) yesterday testified in the sh338m fraud case against five senior revenue officers attached to the Large Tax Payers Department (LTPD).
Allen Kagina told court that officers in the LTPD used not to consult customs to confirm whether goods which were claimed under the duty draw back were actually exported.
“Consultations, verification and confirmation of the bill of entries by duty draw back was not being done with customs before the department was shifted to customs,” Kagina said. Duty draw back was a scheme to refund taxes paid for importation of input items for goods produced locally.
The accused, who include the commissioner LTPD, Martin Feta allegedly caused a financial loss by sanctioning goods which were not exported.
The others, also from the same department are Sam Manana, 43, assistant commissioner Audit, Heridai Katongole Kiza, 52, assistant commissioner in-charge of business analysis, Felix Odongkara, assistant commissioner Audit II and Paul Tumuhairwe, 39, the public relations officer.
