Internet Alcohol Overwhelms Courts

Published onsdag 19 april 2006 kl 10.53
Confiscated Internet Alcohol

A Swedish prosecutor says Customs confiscations of alcohol ordered over the Internet threaten to clog up the courts here.

Because of high prices and the limited number of state liquor stores, many Swedes have begun buying alcohol from other EU countries. The Swedish authorities regard such imports as illegal, but the European Court is still deliberating on the issue.

The chief prosecutor in Jönköping, in southern Sweden, says one seizure two weeks ago involved 1400 separate customers. Prosecutor Jan Axelsson asks what will happen if they all appeal, pointing out that some online merchants actually have forms for filing appeals on their websites.
