The Customs and Immigration Service has today (15 April 2008) published its Annual Report for the year 2007. A copy of the report accompanies this news release.
The Assistant Minister for Home Affairs, Deputy Andrew Lewis says:
"This Annual Report describes the diversity of the work undertaken by the Customs and Immigration Service, including the collection of revenue, the issue of passports and the protection of our frontiers. The Island needs a fully functioning Service in order to fight against the manifold problems that follow illegal immigration, the importation of controlled drugs and revenue fraud.
The Home Affairs Minister and I are committed to ensuring that the Service is well resourced so as to undertake fully its important work.
Despite the many challenges faced by the service in 2007 all the officers have performed in an exemplary manner and are a credit to the States and the people of Jersey
I have full confidence in the integrity, and professionalism of the Customs and Immigration Service and its officers. In particular their unquestionable ability to uphold the law and ensure our borders remain resistant to the threat posed by the importation of narcotics and other controlled items."
Any questions on technical aspects of the report can be addressed to Michael Robinson, the Head of the Customs and Immigration Service.
