Two tons of illegal diesel fuels were seized in a van on “Trakia” highway


Two tons of diesel fuels without documents were seized on "Trakia" highway. A travelling on the road van with a Bulgarian License Plate was stopped for a police check by police officers. During the inspection of the vehicle, two 1-ton tanks which were full of diesel were found in the cargo area. The fuel had no documents and according to the customs officials, who took part of the inspection, it was a mixture of diesel and engine oils. The fuel was seized and samples of it were taken in order to be sent to a laboratory for analysis.

The van is owned by an economic operator, for whom the customs authorities ascertained an illegal use of marked fuel in big quantities.

The investigation on the case is continuing in order to be found out whether these two cases are related or not.
