Since the beginning of the year Brest customs officers have revealed 80 facts of illegal moving of knives, brass knuckles and bludgeons across the customs border
Belarusian customs reminds that under the law when moving cold steel across the customs border it is obligatory to have a permit document of the authorized body (in the Republic of Belarus it is the Ministry of Internal Affairs), follow across the red channel and declare goods.
At the same time customs authorities note the non-compliance trend of cold steel moving.
Since the beginning of the year Brest customs officers have revealed 80 facts of illegal import of knives, brass knuckles and bludgeons into the territory of the EAEU, which are obligatory to declare. Last month at Brest checkpoint customs officers stopped three attempts of illegal import of knives into the territory of the EAEU. According to the Customs laboratory examination all of them are recognized as manufactured cold steel.
Administrative processes are initiated under Part 1 of Article 14.5 of the Administrative Code of the Republic of Belarus. The knives are seized.
