Since the beginning of 2020, the customs authorities of Belarus have identified 16 cases of import of vehicles with modified identification numbers to the territory of the EEU.
So, for example, through the checkpoint "Privalka" a tractor truck Renault Russian company-carrier followed. It”s VIN number was completely "broken". Through the checkpoint "Kamenny Log" tried to move not only a tractor of the same brand, but also a semi-trailer to it.
According to the results of customs control, semi-trailers and tractor-trailers, whose VIN numbers were allegedly "interrupted" for their subsequent illegal import, were sent for examination to the inter-district departments of the state customs SERVICE of the Grodno region. The experts confirmed that the identification numbers were actually changed by destroying the relief of all the panel signs, or a fragment of it was removed and another with secondary markings was welded in its place.
For all identified facts, the customs authorities have started administrative processes, in accordance with part 2 of article 14.1 of the administrative Code of the Republic of Belarus, whose sanctions provide for the imposition of a fine of up to 30 basic amounts and the confiscation of illegally displaced cars.
The total estimated cost of 16 cars was about 425 thousand Belarusian rubles.
