Swedish Armed Forces

Military personnel suspected of smuggling

Published onsdag 26 oktober 2011 kl 18.14

Around ten members of the Swedish Air Force, who served as part of the Swedish contribution to Libya, have now been accused of smuggling, reports Swedish Radio News.

Alcohol and electronic goods are among the items that were discovered upon the armed forces’ return from the military base in Sicily.

The military personnel suspected of smuggling were reported to a prosecutor by military police. The prosecutor’s office is now carrying out a preliminary inquiry into the allegations of smuggling and is looking at whether the items were brought into Sweden illegally.

During the last few months, freight and transport planes have flown between the base on Sicily and Sweden on more or less a weekly basis.  

Although military planes do not, as a rule, pass through customs, personnel are obliged to follow EU tax law just like everyone else.
