Revenue officers have seized nearly 600,000 cigarettes at Dublin Port last Wednesday, 3 November, according to a report in the Irish Times.

The cigarettes, branded Minsk, and bearing a Russian stamp, were discovered by Revenue in a container that had arrived from Belgium. They have an estimated retail value of €445,500, representing a potential loss to the exchequer of €350,100.

In a separate operation at Dublin Port last week, Revenue officers seized 180,000 cigarettes with an estimated retail value of €135,000, representing a potential loss to the exchequer of €106,000.

These seizures are part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting the supply of illegal tobacco products. If businesses or members of the public have any information regarding smuggling they can contact Revenue in confidence on the confidential free phone number 1800-295295.
