Vermicelli with a taste of tobacco - a foreigner's fraud at the customs post "Dyakove"
A Romanian bought cigarettes in Ukraine and wanted to make some money by selling them at home. The Romanian was crossing the border yesterday, June 21. At the customs post "Dyakove" of the Transcarpathian customs office, he chose the "green corridor" for customs control.
Before the customs control he verbally stated that he had no goods and objects hidden from customs control, or those that prohibited to be exported from Ukraine. However, customs officers decided to verify the statement of the citizen and sent the car for in-depth customs inspection.
As a result, in the cabin and the luggage compartment of the vehicle, in 10 yellow cardboard boxes for instatnt noodles "Rolton", 5 of which were in the luggage compartment of the vehicle and 5 - in the cabin of the vehicle, they found hidden foreign-made cigarettes with no excise stamps of the brand JIN LING in solid yellow box labeled FOR DUTY FREE ONLY, in amount of 1080 packs, and cigarettes made Belarus of teh brand NZ Black Super Slim in a solid black and white box, in amount of 440 packs.
Thus, the Romanian committed actions aimed at moving goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control.
Due to the fact that access to cartons with tobacco products was not obstructted, and the design features of the car were not used for illegal movement of goods, the vehicle was not confiscated.
These actions contain signs of violation of customs regulations referred to in Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. Under Article 511 of the Customs Code of Ukraine, 1530 packs of cigarettes were seized.
