February 15, 2017
The Polish government is set to curb the losses to the state budget caused by the increasing illegal activities concerning tobacco products, the daily Rzeczpospolita writes citing the Finance Ministry spokesman Lukasz Swierzewski.
The respective draft amendment to the excise act and some other draft regulations are at the last stage of internal proceedings, Swierzewski said.
The police forces liquidated 26 illegal cigarette factories last year, up by nearly three times year on year.
