Dog guards economic interests
Yesterday, a car "Renault" arrived at the customs post "Uzhgorod" of the Transcarpathian customs office. A Ukrainian, moving in the "green corridor" lane, said that he had nothing prohibited to export from the customs territory of Ukraine and hidden from customs control. However, based on the analysis and risk assessment, the vehicle was sent to the box for customs inspection.
As a result of the in-depth inspection, a dog, which was used to search for prohibited substances, did not disappoint: in the spare wheel of the vehicle, they found tobacco products "Parker & Simpson black" hidden from customs control in total amount of 40 packs, and "Bond" in amount of 20 packs with excise stamps Ukraine. The access to the hidden cigarettes was obtained after cutting the wheel tire.
The Ukrainian explained that the found tobacco products belonged to him and that he had intended to transport them to Slovakia for sale. Thus, our fellow committed actions for transportation of goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control, using means that hinder detection of hidden goods, in this case - using structural cavities of a spare wheel.
These actions have signs of violation of customs regulations under Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. Based on Article 511 of the Customs Code of Ukraine, the tobacco products and the spare wheel were seized, the press service of the SFS in Transcarpathian region informed.
