More than 1000 packs of cigarettes and an "Opel Vivaro" stayed at the customs office

Yesterday, a car "Opel" driven by a citizen of Ukraine arrived at the customs post "Tisa" of the Transcarpathian customs office.

The Ukrainian chose for customs clearance the simplified customs control lane - "green corridor", and before the customs control verbally stated that there were no products and items hidden from customs control or those, that are banned for export from Ukraine, in his car.

Based on risk assessment, the vehicle was taken out of the general queue and sent to the box for in-depth customs inspection. Thus, in the citizen's vehicle, they found tobacco products concealed from customs control, namely cigarettes made in Ukraine without excise stamps brand "Compliment Super Slims 3", labeled "For Duty Free Only", a total of 500 packs; cigarettes "Super slim lifa Strawberry" without excise stamps - 70 packs; cigarettes manufactured in the Republic of Belarus "Super Slims NZ Gold", without excise stamps - 499 packs.

The aforementioned tobacco products were carefully hidden in the structural cavities of the vehicle. The cigarettes were found after dismantling of specially made decorative linings mounted using metal braces. 

Thus, the Ukrainian committed actions aimed at moving goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control, ie using specially manufactured caches. His actions have signs of violation of customs regulations envisaged by Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine.

Based on Article 511 of the Customs Code of Ukraine, the cigarettes in amount of 1,069 packs the cost of which is to be established by specialists, and the car "Opel Vivaro", worth almost 257,000 UAH were confiscated.
