At the border crossing point "Tisa" on the border with Hungary, officers of the Transcarpathian customs prevented illegal transportation of tobacco products from Ukraine in a minibus "MERCEDES-BENZ SPRINTER".
Our compatriot, who was driving the vehicle, was going to Italy. During the oral survey, the citizen denied having any hidden goods prohibited or restricted for transportation across the customs border of Ukraine.
However, based on analysis and risk assessment, customs officers sent the vehicle to the in-depth inspection box. Consequently, customs officers found 244 packs of tobacco products hidden in the side doors of the minibus. The Ukrainian hid from the customs control domestically made cigarettes Marlboro, CAMEL, WINSTON with excise stamps of Ukraine.
The cost of the seized filter cigarettes, according to the price that was printed on the packaging, is almost 7,400 UAH.
Thus, the Ukrainian committed the acts aimed at moving goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control using specially manufactured caches. In this regard, a report on violation of customs regulations was drawn up against him, and the vehicle worth 424,607 UAH and the cigarettes were seized for safekeeping until the court decision.
