A foreigner "left" a car to customs officers at the checkpoint "Uzhgorod"

The incident took place yesterday in the area of the ​​Transcarpathian customs office. A European driving a car "FIAT SKUDO", en route to Ukraine on private matters, arrived at the customs post "Uzhgorod" and presented documents for the car. Those were: a certificate of registration for the vehicle and the letter of authorization for operation of the vehicle issued by the vehicle owner on the blank of a Polish company and signed by the manager.During the customs control, the customs officers had doubts about the authenticity of the letter of authorization for operation of the vehicle. It was decided to send a request to establish the authenticity of the document to the director of the Polish company, who gave an official response - the document was a complete fake.
Thus, these actions of the foreigner constitute an offense classified under Part 1 of Art. 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. The report against the citizen was drawn up. The object of the customs rules violation - the car "FIAT SKUDO" - was confiscated. At present, its value is being established. Meanwhile, using the unified automated information system (UAIS) of the Customs Service of Ukraine, they found out that this foreign citizen had imported another 10 cars to Ukraine. After that, they were transferred to other persons for payment. Now, these vehicles are in Ukraine. Nobody has appealed to customs offices for extension of the stay of the cars in Ukraine. Reports were drawn up against and penalties will be imposed on the citizen who has committed the customs offenses. The PR Department of the Main Office of the SFS in Transcarpathian region
