On the eve of the main sale of the year - Black Friday, our citizens tried to make an illegal import of more than 500 items of stylish clothing.
During the last day, Lviv customs officers exposed two attempts on illegal transportation of men’s and women’s clothing across the customs border of Ukraine at checkpoint “Shehyni – Medyka”. Citizens of Ukraine returning from the Republic of Poland have chosen the “green corridor” lane; subsequently they have stated that they do not have goods for declaration. But during inspection of the luggage compartment and interior of their cars customs officers found new stylish clothes of famous manufacturers: PIERRE CARDIN, JOOP, RINGELLA, LIU JO, etc. There were more than 300 units (skirts, sweatshirts, pants) in one car and about 200 (jackets, sweaters, pants) in another.
As follows, citizens violated the established procedure of customs control and clearance in the corridors of simplified customs control. These actions are indicative of violation of the customs rules prescribed in Article 471 of the Customs Code of Ukraine.
Goods have been seized, their cost will be determined additionally; cases will be sent to the court.
