BLOG – ‘Professional’ Smuggling Tunnel Linking HK to China Discovered

Border officials have uncovered a ‘professional’ 40-metre underground smuggling tunnel linking Hong Kong to the mainland…

The tunnel was complete with lighting, pulleys, air vents and a rail track. A government website in China said that the passage had “one end in a rented garage in Shenzhen and another in a thicket of reeds in Hong Kong, totally concealed… it was dug in a totally professional way.”

By assessing its design, mainland authorities believe the passageway was built in order to import phones, hard drives, tablet computers and luxury goods. It measured a metre in height and 0.8 metres in width – just enough for an adult to crawl through.
