The Romanian Police have started a wide-ranging action to check the legality of goods carried through the Constanta Port, with emphasis on grain shipments and shipments of wood, metallic and non-metallic waste, the Romanian General Police Inspectorate (IGPR) reports in a press release issued on Thursday. The action is said to be conducted in order to prevent illicit trade that affects the Government’s revenue and the competitive environment, ordered by Inspector General Petre Toba. “The control teams scan the documents accompanying the shipments that leave the port to follow traceability of goods from the beneficiary (the company in the port) to the supplying companies. This activity is meant to identify commercial companies and persons controlling companies implicated in tax-evasion activities. The officers are also conducting direct checks to establish the legality of commercial operations recorded in the inspected documents and the way in which revenue is recorded and declared”, IGPR reports.
