Argentine Customs prevents smuggling of 121 tons of garlic

The Argentine General Directorate of Customs halted exports for a total of 121 tons of garlic in operations on routes to Brazil and Chile. The organization warned that the suppliers did not have production capacities consistent with the volumes of garlic they intended to export. Customs required them to submit the proper documentation to justify its legal possession of it and given that they weren’t able to do it resolved the interdiction of the cargo that was in primary customs zones, specifically, in fiscal warehouses in the province of Mendoza and in the Paso de la Barca Reservation in Misiones.

In a very recent case, Customs officials denounced a Brazilian operator who presented credit notes of dubious legitimacy to justify the lack of foreign currency income in an export of US$156,000 to their country of origin. It did not have a single employee in a dependency relationship. The agency is investigating, in conjunction with the Argentine Embassy in Brazil, the network of people who are involved.
