Bestrin Group, the successful bidder to supply a fleet of 489 NGV buses to Bangkok Mass Transit Authority, has admitted that the first lot of 100 buses which are held up at Laem Chabang deep-sea port were imported from China and not assembled in Malaysia as earlier claimed by the company, said Customs Department chief Kulit Sombatsiri on Tuesday.
