Customs officials seize 10 million black market cigarettes

Tuesday 26 February 2013

Customs officials in Tilburg have seized a consignment of some 10 million black market cigarettes and arrested a 68-year-old man.

The cigarettes were found in a warehouse and officials think they were heading for the British market.

Last year officials seized some 62 million illegal cigarettes in the Netherlands.

This is to be expected when governments slap an absurd amount of tax on something popular & in demand.
Because of the recent & unfair rise in tax on Dutch tobacco, many are now buying in Belgium & reselling here. 62 million seized out of a possible 500million is not a bad attempt: 'wonder what it cost on salaries to achieve that, already censored? :P

Who is right & who is wrong, go figure..
