"As of now we have suspended the management of the Odesa customs," he said.
According to Likarchuk, the Fiscal Service is currently looking for a new head of the Odesa customs and its subsidiaries.
The last head of the Odesa customs was Volodymyr Perederii.
Earlier, members of the MP Control inter-faction association stated that about half of all the cargo going through the Odesa customs was basically smuggled due to lowering its customs value. The lawmakers appealed to the Prosecutor General's Office regarding illegal actions on the part of acting head of the Fiscal Service in Odesa region Serhii Danilin and Head of the Odesa customs Volodymyr Perederii.
"We have provided dozens of facts relating to the activities of Perederii and Danilin, the way they laundered money, how much money is passed to the tax division, how the smuggling is carried out and how cargo is distributed and where it goes," MP Maksym Poliakov said.
