An attempt to smuggle 2.5 tons of fur prevented in Domodedovo
As reported by the Federal Customs Service on its official website, Domodedovo Airport customs officers have prevented an attempt of illicit traffic of two and a half tons of fur products from the Czech Republic.
Officers of Domodedovo customs post confiscated a consignment of goods, weighing 2392 kilograms. According to the website, transit declaration was available; however, the documents indicated the import of Chinese fabric material to Russia for the production of blankets with a total cost of 10 thousand dollars.
In reality, the consignment consisted of costly garments made of leather and fur. In particular, under the guise of blanket material, the violators tried to smuggle 1146 fur and leather coats and jackets, 292 jackets made of synthetic material, as well as handbags, swimwear and footwear to Russia.
According to the customs, expert examination is currently estimating the cost of illegally imported goods. When the cost estimation is complete the perpetrators will be prosecuted.
Recently, the FSB officers visited the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Primorsky District of St. Petersburg. The operatives of the Department M came to the police officers accompanied by the investigator and the search warrant. They were looking for evidence on the fact of falsification of a criminal case. However, a similar situation for the Primorsky Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is more likely to be a regular show: the staff of the administration and its superiors have appeared in high-profile criminal cases as defendants far too often.
