"Two workers of Lviv customs office, an enterprise chairman and a customs broker are notified of suspicion of creating a scheme of illegal shipment of precious and color metals from the territory of Ukraine to the Republic of Poland", reads the message.
The chairman of the enterprise used particulars of a number of companies and organized the scheme of purchase of old electronic devices from other enterprises in Ukraine. These devices contained precious and color metals. Having colluded with the broker and workers of Lviv customs office who changed codes of classification of these goods, they managed to set the illegal shipment across Ukraine-Poland border.
According to the expertise, the gimmick cost the state treasury some 230,000 $.
Currently, the workers of Lviv customs office are suspended, and the court chooses restriction measures for them.
