In Nakhodka a criminal case has been opened into the smuggling of hard coal worth 2,3 million rubles

Nakhodka customs officers opened a criminal case on the smuggling of coal, the press service of the Far Eastern Customs said.

In the spring of 2014, a foreign sea vessel (flag of Cambodia) operated by the Russian captain sailed from the port of Nakhodka to the Republic of Korea from the customs territory of the Customs Union. According to the ship’s documents, the captain declared the export of 4438 tons of hard coal for export.

As a result of operational search activities, Nakhodka customs officers established and documented that, in addition to the declared coal, 1765 tons of undeclared coal were loaded into the holds of the sea vessel.

It was established that the export of contraband coal was carried out by prior agreement with a group of persons. The criminal group included an organizer who, in order to realize his criminal intentions, created and headed the company, and secretly owned the ship, and the executor was the captain of the vehicle. In order to conceal the actual amount of hard coal exported, conceal the payee, and also the amount of profit, the organizer of the criminal group used the offshore company controlled by him.

In accordance with the conclusion of the Primorsky Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the value of illegally exported coal amounted to 2,3 million rubles, which in accordance with the Criminal Code is a large size.

On this fact, the father of the inquiry of the Nakhodka Customs with respect to a group of persons initiated a criminal case under part 1 Article 226.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal transfer across the customs border of the Customs Union of strategically important resources on a large scale, committed by a group of persons by prior conspiracy). The sanction of this article provides for punishment in the form of imprisonment for up to seven years.
