Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon has ordered the suspension of the release of 200 cars from the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority.

Biazon said the suspension is in compliance with a Jan. 7, 2013 Supreme Court ruling upholding the constitutionality of Executive Order 156, which partially bans the importation of used vehicles.

"Dahil po doon sa desisyon ng Supreme Court tungkol sa operation ng importation ng second hand vehicles, eh nag-pautos po ako na suspended muna ang processing [hanggang] meron po kaming makuha na certificate of finality, order ng SC," Biazon told dzMM.
