55 cars and motorcycles worth €750.000 seized in aggravated smuggling case in Italy

Yesterday, 15 March 2021, the Italian Financial Police (Guardia di Finanza,) of Savona (Italy) seized 10 luxury cars and 45 luxury and vintage motorcycles, executing an order of the pre-trial judge requested by the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO). The vehicles, with a market value of €750.000, are registered in the name of a company outside the EU, but in possession of a person who has been living permanently in Italy while having a fictitious residence in a South American country.

The holder of the vehicles has introduced them into the Italian territory without paying border fees and allegedly evaded more than €250.000 in customs duties and VAT. He has been reported to the EPPO Torino office for the offence of aggravated smuggling.
