At the customs post "Tisa", a Ukrainian with contraband cigarettes was detained
A minibus "Volkswagen Crafter" driven by a citizen of Ukraine arrived at the customs post "Tisa" of the Chop Customs. The Ukrainian was secretly moving tobacco products across the state border, but he failed to deliver them to Italy, where he was heading.
The citizen chose the "red corridor" for customs control, where customs officials asked him to fill out a customs declaration. The declarant indicated his passport data, the information on the vehicle, the information of the foreign currency, and the presence of personal belongings.
When asked whether he was moving any other products, including those that are subject to a written declaration, or prohibited or restricted for transportation across the customs border of Ukraine, the citizen said that he was not.
However, customs officers decided to send the vehicle for in-depth customs inspection. As a result, they found 383 packs of tobacco products in specially made recesses. Cigarettes of domestic production with excise stamps of Ukraine of brands «Winston Blue», «Winston Red» and «Chesterfield Blue» were hidden from customs control.
