Suspected counterfeit cigarettes would be worth €4.5m in retail terms if genuine
Over nine million cigarettes have been seized at Dublin Port as part of an intelligence-led operation carried out with China’s customs authorities.
If genuine, the cigarettes would be worth about €4.5 million at retail value. This shipment is believed to be counterfeit, however.
Revenue’s Customs Service discovered the cigarettes on Thursday in a container which had left China aboard the vessel MV Cosco Fortune.
