On August 25, 2020, Kazakhstani border guards once again prevented the fact of illegal import of tobacco products into the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
At the checkpoint "Sypatay Batyr" of the Zhambyl region, during a joint inspection with the employees of the OCE DPR for the Zhambyl region, 522,000 packs of tobacco products hidden from inspection were found in a truck transporting dried fruits without excise stamps and shipping documents (the market value of the goods is more than 150 million tenge).
The illegal cargo was transferred to the Department of Economic Investigations for the Zhambyl region for a procedural assessment.
