AN ARGENTINA CUSTOMS ‘MAFIA’ EARNED MILLIONS FROM CHINA IMPORTS

Insight Crime on 27th November carried an article reporting that authorities in Argentina are prosecuting 48 customs officials accused of leading an elaborate network that made millions forging records of Chinese imports, highlighting, it says, how vulnerable the country’s ports are to customs fraud.  The “mafia” is accused of falsifying records of goods imported from China to Argentina, mainly between 2014 and 2015, in order to avoid taxes.
