The illicit cigarettes were burned in the furnaces of Holcim Bulgaria under the supervision of the Southwestern customs office. The cigarettes were of various brands and did not have Bulgarian excise bands, specified by the Agency. The illicit excise goods were seized in recent years by the Customs at the checkpoints Logodazh, Zlatarevo and Gueshevo, as well as at Kulata and Ilinden.

Tangier: 65,000 Smuggled Cigarettes Seized by Custom Services

1.3480146 03 April 2014 21:58:12 Morocco World News

Casablanca - Morocco launched a fierce war against smuggled goods and illegal substances. Custom services confiscated 65,000 smuggled cigarettes at the port of Tangier last week. Custom services at the port of Tangier seized around 3,260 packets of cigarettes last week, according to Aufaitmaroc . This large quantity of smuggled cigarettes was found after two separate scanning operations by custom services on exports at the port, according to the same source. In the first scanning operation, 1,560 packages of smuggled cigarettes were found concealed in the rear fender of a van driven by a Moroccan resident of Spain. Custom services found another 1,700 cigarettes hidden in three suitcases transported in a tourist’s car registered in Morocco. The quantity of smuggled goods confiscated by custom services in Moroccan ports has clearly increased in 2014. The kingdom has also seen a dramatic increase in illegal substances seized in airports, especially Mohammed V Airport in Casablanca. Most of the smuggled goods and illegal substances commonly seized come predominantly from foreign countries, carried by foreign and Moroccan suspects. In the same context, French police in Paris seized around 2,500 allegedly stolen solar panels that were about to be shipped to Tangier last week. Fifteen Moroccans were reportedly arrested in the operation. Edited by Liz Yaslik. Photo courtesy Nelson Correia © Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.
