Suspected Czech egg smuggler stopped at Sydney airport

A Czech has been stopped at Australia’s Sydney airport on suspicion of trying to illegally smuggle bird eggs into the country. The 39-year-old was checked by customs officers after he arrived on a flight from Dubai and was found to be hiding 16 small eggs in his underpants. He is expected to appear in court. The maximum penalty for smuggling eggs of endangered species is 10 years in prison.
