Joint customs operation at check-point Albita, Romania

During the night of 21 September, the Romanian border with the Republic of Moldova was the setting of a major Joint Customs Operation aimed at curbing cigarette smuggling.

For the first time, the Romanian, Moldovan and Ukrainian Heads of Customs, participated in the field checks, together with the Director-General of the European Anti-Fraud Office.

This unprecedented attendance at check-point Albita showed the support of the four partners to the customs officers that work day and night to protect the European Union’s Eastern border against trafficking.
