Over 50 tonnes of fruit and veg stopped by Belarusian customs
A batch of fresh pears had been shipped from Poland to Russia under the guise of rubber. A Renault Magnum was stopped for inspection in the Rosson district of the Vitebsk region, the SCC said.
"In the shipping documents, it was stated that the truck was carrying 20 tonnes of rubber, when the vehicle in fact contained about 19 tonnes of pears. The cost of the batch of fruits, according to preliminary estimates, was Br37.5 thousand (about 15,900 Euro)," the Customs Committee said.
On the same day, the Operative Customs officers seized a large consignment of lettuce, celery, arugula, cilantro, parsley, spinach and sorrel moving through the territory of the Euroasian Economic Union (EAEU). The total weight of the shipment was about 13 tonnes worth over Br130 thousand (about 55,123 Euro)," reported the State Customs Committee.
A couple of days later, a truck heading for the Russian Federation, which was carrying a batch of fresh tomatoes, was also stopped. "Following its inspection, it was found that the goods were imported from Poland with invalid transport documents, and that there was no phytosanitary certificate confirming the safety of the products," the SCC said. About 19 tonnes of the vegetable were seized, with a value estimated at Br75 thousand (about 31,802 Euro).
In all three cases, the Operative Customs Office initiated administrative proceedings in accordance with Part 4, Article 12.17 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Republic of Belarus.
