Over 6 million rubles of customs payments were not paid to the state budget by an importer when importing shoes from China. Officers of the Far East Operational Customs (FEFOC) uncovered the crime.

A company from Primorye submitted 7 declarations for imported goods: men’s and women’s sneakers, shoes, boots and boots to the Far Eastern Customs Post (Electronic Declaration Center) of the Far Eastern Operational Customs. When declaring the goods, false information about the value of the goods was indicated

Officers of the Far Eastern Federal Customs Service, while carrying out operational and investigative measures, found that the importer, in order to save on customs payments, understated the value of shoes more than 2 times

Dalnevostochnaya operative customs against the director of the company initiated a criminal case under paragraph “g” of part 2 of article 194 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (evasion of customs payments levied from the organization, committed on an especially large scale). An investigation is underway

The company has now fully reimbursed the damage to the state – more than 6 million rubles. In addition, the director of the company faces a fine of up to 500,000 rubles.

An investigation is underway
