More and more psychotropic substances and illicit medicines are carried from Europe

A citizen of Ukraine who was returning home from the Spanish town of Madrid via the checkpoint "Tisa" was carrying the medication worth 9,000 UAH. It was not the first time the resident of Ternopil crossed the border and was well aware of the officially permitted value of goods imported into the territory of Ukraine - up to 500 Euro. Still he decided to disregard the customs regulations. For that he had to pay ...

During the customs coltrol, inspectors discovered in the cargo compartment of a minibus among the driver's personal items 75 packages of foreign medications "Betaferon 250 microgramos / ml" by "BAYER". The driver was transporting undeclared drugs at the request of a person from the city of Kamyanets-Podilsky.

So, against our compatriot the protocol under Article 472 of the Customs Code of Ukraine was written. The medications were confiscated until the court decision.

Also, during the check of the luggage belonging to a female citizen of Ukraine who was returning home by the international passenger train "Chiyerna-nad-Tisoyu-Chop", the inspectors found undeclared 50 tablets of drugs "Mabron Retard" containing the active ingredient "Tramadoli hydrochloridum" (100 mg in each tablet).

Active ingredient "tramadol" is listed in the list 1 of the Table II "Psychotropic substances subject to restriction and exemptions of some control measures", according to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers dd. 06.05.2000 № 770 "On approval of the list of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors." Accordingly, these drugs required a permission to import or export, which the woman did not have.

At the customs post "Luzhanka" of the Chop customs, a citizen of Ukraine "forgot" that he was carrying 100 tablets of psychotropic drugs.

It turned out that the discovered jar with 100 tablets of the drug "RIVOTRIL 2 mg" contained an active substance "klonazepam". This medications is also included in the list of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances and precursors subject to restrictions.     While crossing the Ukrainian-Hungarian border, the driver did not have any permits, he only said that he had bought medicines in a pharmacy in Hungary, and was carrying them at the request of his neighbor.

The said violations were documented, the protocols were drawn up, the psychotropic and narcotic drugs were seized.
