Customs confiscate 3.5 million worth of fuel imports

In an operation in Czech border areas, customs officials have confiscated fuel imports worth 3.5 million crowns, a spokeswoman for the customs said. The inspections took place on Thursday and Friday when officials checked all fuel transports crossing the border to the Czech Republic for documents proving VAT had been paid. Tax evasions on fuel imports annually cause losses of between five and eight billion crowns, according to the customs’ estimates.
