The Macau Customs Service has fined two officers and suspended another for mistakenly raising the national flag upside down earlier this year, the Secretariat for Security (GSS) said in a statement yesterday.

The statement did not reveal the amount of the fines imposed on the two officers and the length of the suspension of the other.

On July 3, officers of the Customs Service erroneously raised the national flag upside down on the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal at 7:10 a.m., but the mistake was not rectified until 12:10 p.m. The Customs Service admitted on that day that the embarrassing incident was due to “negligence” by the officers in charge.
