The Kiev customs service told another funny story related to the smuggling of Apple products. Upon the arrival of one of the flights from the OAU to the Borispol airport, customs officers found three “accidentally forgotten” travel suitcases in the baggage claim area. As a result, it turned out that they were stuffed with Apple gadgets before decoupling.
During a search by customs officers, 113 iPhone smartphones and 71 sets of Apple Air Pods Pro headphones were found. The total estimated value of the seized goods is UAH 1.8 million.
The identity of the owners of the suitcases was able to establish the appropriate tags. At that time, they had already left the airport. It is noteworthy that they remembered the accidentally forgotten luggage only a few weeks after the arrival day. And of course, they also forgot to declare the products transported in these suitcases.
When passengers turned to the locker room to get their suitcases, the customs officers drew up protocols on customs violation. The basis for the protocol is Art. 472 of the Customs Code of Ukraine (non-declaration of goods that move across the customs border). That is, the owners of the suitcases are suspected of smuggling, phones and headphones were seized before the court ruling.
