An E-commerce consultant will take the Comptroller of Customs to court for detaining a plastic mannequin. 

Justice Ricky Rahim has granted him judicial review and the matter will be heard in April. 

He is contending that the detention of the plastic doll was unlawful.  

He imported the mannequin on December 28th, 2018, but he was informed by a customs officer that it was being detained under section 45(1) of the Customs Act as it was considered an obscene or indecent article. 

His attorneys issued a letter to the Comptroller seeking reasons for the mannequin’s detention.  

The comptroller informed them that the mannequin was being detained pending verification and a report will be prepared. 

There are much more details to this story and you can read all about it in tomorrow’s Guardian newspaper.
