Summary
  • Increasing the price of tobacco results in more smuggling across the English channel. Smuggling has become very organized and criminal gangs such as the Italian mafia have become involved because their drug activities have been curtailed by gangs from eastern Europe. Europol believes that gang warfare will result as they fight for dominance of the trade. Smugglers can make good profits and the risks are small. They know when Customs and Excise staff change shifts and they co-ordinate their passage to get through without being stopped.
