At the end of October, during one of the night shifts at DHP Rozvadov, the Mobile Surveillance Patrol of the Customs Office for the Pilsen Region inspected a tank with goods that were declared to be anti-corrosion liquid.
With the cooperation of the mobile laboratory of the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic, samples were taken from all filled chambers of the tank. However, preliminary results from the samples taken showed that it is probably heavy gas oil, which includes, for example, diesel fuel, and should be subject to consumption tax. From the submitted documents, which the driver had, it appeared that the transport route was to be made from Hungary to Belgium. However, the downloaded data from the digital tachograph did not confirm this fact.
The results from the mobile laboratory, the data from the submitted documents and the evaluated data from the digital tachograph raised doubts among the customs officials about the correctness of the declared data, and based on the information obtained, there was a reasonable suspicion that the inspected person was transporting goods other than those declared and that the goods in question were being transported without a document according to of the Excise Tax Act, which would demonstrate proper payment of the excise tax.
The goods in a total amount of 30,884 liters, including the tank set, were secured by the customs officials. In the event that the suspicion of illegal transport is confirmed and proper taxation is not proven, in this case there is a risk of confiscation of the goods in favor of the state, possibly also of the means of transport, and consumption tax will be assessed.
