Unidentified gunmen failed in a late-night quest this week, to kill the top customs official who is heading the revenue fraud investigation in the import of GoldQuest medallions. The assasination attempt came in the wake of customs investigators starting to question individual participants of the GoldQuest’s controversial quick money network marketing scheme.

By last week, customs had grilled about 60 participants to find out the true value paid to a haul of GoldQuest products that is now detained at Katunayake airport.

The medallions and other GoldQuest products had been imported in bulk by a shipping firm, allegedly on falsified documents, which declared a lower value than was paid by GoldQuest participants.

Customs had previously raided the shipping firm and taken into their custody a large haul of documents.

The detained shipment of GoldQuest products is estimated to have a transaction value of around Rs. 20 mn.
