A foreigner used juice to camouflage contraband cigarettes (PHOTOS)

A Hungarian driving a car OPEL ASTRA decided to pass customs control through the "green corridor" at the customs post "Luzhanka" and during the oral survey denied transporting any goods that are subject to a written declaration, payment of customs duties and prohibition on the export from Ukraine.

However, based on analysis and risk assessment, officers of the Transcarpathian customs office took the foreigner's vehicle out of the general flow for customs inspection. And not for nothing: during in-depth inspection of the citizen's car and personal things, they found 1,000 packs of domestically made filtered cigarettes "Marlboro touch" and "Rothmans" with excise stamps of Ukraine. The tobacco products were hidden in eight cartons of juice "Sadochok", 120 packs of cigarettes in each box and covered at the top of the box with two 2 liter packs of juice.

The price of these cigarettes according to the information marked on each pack, is 21 UAH per pack of "Marlboro touch" and 12 UAH per pack of "Rothmans", and their total cost is 16,500 UAH. 

Thus, the foreigner committed actions aimed at moving goods (cigarettes) through the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control, ie using methods that hinder identification of such goods.

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 were confiscated.

контрабандистам на заметку, если вас поймали то прикидывайтесь шлангом,юридически вы не пересекали границу так как у нас погранцы при выезде стоят ЗА таможней,поэтому факта пересечения границы нет как и нет контрабанды,паспорт забыл дома и идите все на..........
