SBU materials help to convict smuggler of precursors
SBU materials help to convict the local resident for smuggling of the precursors to the territory of our state in Dnipro.
The law enforcers established that the resident of the regional centre organized the illegal importing of the banned medical products from one of the European countries to Ukraine.
The SBU operatives detained a smuggler at one of the checkpoints of Transcarpathian Customs Office in May, 2017. During the search of the offender’s car, the SBU officers uncovered 60,000 pills of the forbidden medicinal product "Rinasek".
According to experts’ conclusion, the cost of the seized consignment was over UAH 1,000,000 (USD 38,461) on the “black market”.
The court found the detainee guilty in committing the crime stipulated by Part 3 Article 305 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine and sentenced to eight years of imprisonment with confiscation of property.
The verdict has come into legal force.
