The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) said in a press release that despite several meetings between its shipping company APL and the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department, the SAF has not been provided formal reasons as yet for the detention of the Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicles (ICV).

SAF said that  following their second meeting with the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department on 1 December from 10.30am to 4.30pm, a third meeting was conducted from 10am to 4pm today, without any new developments.

The SAF has advised APL officials to continue to extend their full cooperation to the Hong Kong Customs in order to expedite the return of the SAF’s Terrex ICVs.

In 2010, the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department confiscated a disarmed K-21 light tank and an armoured military carrier which was shipped through the port after being displayed at exhibitions in Saudi Arabia and shipped back to the South Korean city of Busan. South Korea later got back the military vehicles through China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
