In Primorye, a customs officer received two years in prison for "fruit tax" from tourists in China

The Frontier District Court in the Primorsky Krai sentenced the inspector of the border guard post of the Ussuri Customs to two years imprisonment, imposing illegal collection of Chinese tourists leaving the Russian Federation, the press service of the Far Eastern Transport Prosecutor's Office (DVTP) reported. He was found guilty of attempted fraud using his official position (part 3, article 30, part 3, article 159, CC RF).

Reportedly, the customs officer systematically demanded a fee for the export of fruit from Russia, although no fees and charges for this are provided by the legislation of the Russian Federation. Chinese tourists appealed to law enforcement agencies, and the customs officer was soon detained with red-handedness on receipt of another "fruit harvest".

In addition to the real term, the inspector was sentenced to a fine of 30 thousand rubles. and dismissed from customs.
