Far Eastern customs officers stopped a large smuggling of crab to China

Customs officers and law enforcement officers stopped a large smuggling of living crab to China for almost 36 million rubles, which was organized by a group of people in the Far East among other illegal shipments abroad, reports Far Eastern Operational Customs.

"During the joint operational search activities by officers of the Far Eastern Operational Customs, Federal Security Service Directorate of Russia for the Primorsky Territory, the FSB Border Department, and verification activities by the Far Eastern Transport Prosecutor's Office, four cases of smuggling to China 51 tons of live crab totaling 35,9 million rubles were revealed" - reads the message.
According to the DVOT, an organized group of individuals has been exporting crabs using companies under their control, including foreign ones.
"It was established that with the involvement of these companies in December 2016 and April 2017, foreign economic contracts were concluded for export to the Republic of Korea, China and Japan in total more than one thousand tons of blue, Kamchatka and equipod live crab worth 13,8 million US dollars", - reports TWo
Four batches of live crab were sent to China in accordance with the signed contracts. When making seafood, offenders claimed inaccurate information about the transaction and lowered the cost of goods more than twice.
It is noted that the criminal group operated on the territory of the Sakhalin region, Primorsky Territory, other regions of the Far East, and repeatedly exported valuable seafood from Russia on forged documents.
The DOTA instituted four criminal cases under the article “smuggling of strategically important resources on a large scale, committed by an organized group of persons”.
