A van loaded with 50 master cases of illegal cigarettes was stopped at Kulata border checkpoint. Freight van Peugeot with Bulgarian license plate was stopped for inspection this morning. Officially it was transporting foreign personal baggage, but it turned out that except clothing and household there were 25,000 boxes of cigarettes without excise labels.
Earlier this month, customs officers stopped two vans in an attempt to enter the country illegal cigarettes through the same scheme.
