Report fraud

Around 11 million cigarettes were seized during a Joint Customs Operation (JCO), coordinated by Estonian Customs Administration and the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), with the involvement of 5 Member States (Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland). JCO MAGNUM was a regional operation, which targeted smuggling of tobacco products transported by road into the EU territory from third countries such as Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.

The final results of the operation, which was conducted in February 2016, were shared during a debriefing meeting in Estonia on 17 March.
