A 30-year-old man who bought a BMW model car in Romania, remained without it after taxpayers established that the car was being sought by UK law enforcement authorities.
The Moldovan wanted to leave the country by car, but at the control line it was found that the car was listed in the Interpol database as being sought by the English authorities.
The car driver told the customs officers that he purchased the car in Romania with various technical defects and repaired it in Moldova. The man also said he was using the vehicle without knowing he was being sought in England.
The BMW was detained on the territory of the SPF Leuşeni until all the circumstances are elucidated.
