Polish Customs Seize Counterfeit Cigarettes
In April 2011, the Polish customs officials seized 10,000 cigarettes suspected of being counterfeit.
After inspecting a freight train in Dorohusk, a village in eastern Poland, the customs officials discovered the cigarettes buried under tons of coal. The officials believe that the shipment was intended for the Ukrainian market. The train has been impounded and investigation is underway.
