Media Release: Over 4,000 beverages seized from a Swatar store by members of the Joint Enforcement Task-force (JET)

A long investigation by the Joint Enforcement Task-force (JET) into the business of a Cospicua Barber Shop, has led Officials from the Customs Department’s Enforcement Unit and Tax Inspectors from the Revenue Department,  to a garage, in Swatar, which was being used for storage purpose by the owner of the Barber Shop. The search yielded a discovery of  4,134 bottles of non-alcoholic beverages which were imported in Malta without taxes being paid.
