FINLAND: SNUS SMUGGLING RING EVADED €4.6 MILLION IN TAXES

YLE in Finland on 17th September reported that Finnish Customs says it has uncovered an organised ring believed to have smuggled more than 12 tonnes of snus tobacco into Finland from Sweden between 2016 and 2018.  Sales of the substance are banned in all EU countries except Sweden.  Snus is a moist powder tobacco product, essentially a sort of dry snuff that is placed in the upper lip for extended periods.
