Brit caught smuggling

A British national who attempted to smuggle tobacco and cigarettes from the north was on Tuesday hit with a hefty fine after having the duty free products seized.

Customs officers manning the checkpoint in Ledra street stopped the man, who was carrying ten kilos of rolling tobacco and 13 cartons of cigarettes, on none of which had the duty been paid.

The man was arrested for customs offences and the products were confiscated as liable to forfeiture. The total import duty and taxes attributable to the tobacco amounted to €2,088 and to the cigarettes €456.

The customs offences committed were settled out of court with a payment to the tune of €3,550 and the man was released.
