Police uncover close to one million liters of bootleg liquor

21-05-2013

The police have uncovered close to one million liters of untaxed liquor in storage in a number of warehouses around the country. The tanks of alcohol had been cemented underground in order to escape inspections relating to the methanol scandal which broke out last year. Several people from an unspecified firm have been detained for questioning. The loss in taxes is estimated at 300 million crowns. The police’s organized crime squad is on the case.
