GNR seizes homemade liqueur on Avenida Arriaga

About 37 litres of liqueur and spirits were seized for failing to comply with legal or security requirements.

An anonymous complaint led GNR to seize alcoholic beverages, namely homemade liqueur, which was being sold in some tents along Avenida Arriaga.

Major Marco Nunes of GNR explained to Antena 1,  that 37 litres of liqueur and spirits were seized for failing to comply with legal or security requirements.

There are two infringements in question: on the one hand the fact that the bottles did not bear the proper seal but has already paid the tax. In this case the fine may be from 250 euros to 500 euros. Secondly no consumption tax has ever been paid for the beverages in question. Fines for this range from 1500 euros to 3,000 euros.
