Enforcement pays off

British American Tobacco Australia (BATA) today congratulated authorities for using the increased penalties under an amendment to the Customs Act 1901, made in 2012, to prosecute two illegal tobacco importers for smuggling over 1.4 million cigarettes from Korea in June 2013.

BATA states the facts

The Federal Government’s tobacco excise policy combined with the failed plain packaging legislation is resulting in more smokers purchasing cigarettes from the lower priced segment than ever. Today there are 1.4 million smokers purchasing legal cigarettes between $13 and $15.
