Nasa 2,032 piraso ng ornamental plants ang nasabat ng BOC-Port of NAIA nitong Mayo 19 dahil sa kawalan ng plant quarantine permit bago ang kanilang importasyon alinsunod na rin sa DA Circular No. 4, s. 2016 at DA Administrative Circular No. 5, s. 2020.
Idineklara ring nasa 100 pirasong live ornamental plants ang kargado na dumating sa Paircargo warehouse ngunit lumabas sa eksaminasyon na nasa 2,032 pirasong alocasia, aglaonema, pothos, calathea, philodendron, crimson, monstera, cactus, sanseveria, at rubber plant pala ang mga ito, na paglabag sa Sec. 1113 at Sec. 1400 ng CMTA.
Ibinigay na ang mga nakumpiskang halaman sa Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) para sa quarantine o madaliang disposal para iwas pagkalat ng posibleng plant diseases o pests na maaaring makaapekto sa lokal na agrikultura.
Pinaalalahanan ng BOC-NAIA ang publiko na kinakailangan sa importasyon ng halaman ang sanitary at phytosanitary import clearance ng BPI.
