More than 1 ton of sweets From Romania to Ukraine in violation of customs legislation
Today, a Romanian driving a "Volkswagen Saran" arrived at the customs control zone of the customs post "Solotvyno" of the Transcarpathian customs office. He was going to Ukraine for private business and chose the "green corridor" for customs control. During the oral survey, the foreigner denied carrying any goods in the amount subject to customs duties and to statutory prohibitions or restrictions on importation into the customs territory of Ukraine.
During the customs control of the Romanian's vehicle and belongings, customs officers found foreign-made food: chocolate bars "SNICKERS" made in Poland - 292 boxes, 11,680 pieces weighing 584 kg; chewing marmalade "TROLLI GUMMI CANDY" made in Germany - 279 pcs., 279 kg; and chewing marmalade "TROLLI MAUSESPASS" also made in Germany - 180 pcs., 216 kg.
The found food was being moved across the customs border of Ukraine in the cabin and luggage compartment of the vehicle. Access to the goods was not obstructed and became possible immediately after opening the side doors and the luggage compartment.
The determination of the cost of the seized goods requires additional assessment involving an expert.
The Romanian, by choosing the "green corridor" form of customs control of the goods, the transportation of which across the customs border of Ukraine is restricted by the law of Ukraine, violated the customs legislation. These actions have signs of violation of customs rules under Article 471 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. A report was drawn up, and the goods, that are direct objects of violation of customs regulations, were confiscated.
