Interesting piece on, of all things, garlic smuggling into the EU from China. People will do strange things to avoid a 9.6% garlic tariff. One tactic was to bring it into Norway (a non-EU member), then sneak it across the Swedish border without any tariff, thence to the rest of the EU.
What threw me at first was this passage-
OLAF estimates that millions of euros have been lost over the years, "not to mention the indirect losses by means of unfair competition and loss of market share by EU producers".
The piece almost read like an Onion essay on garlic, since we had an outfit called OLAF dealing with Scandinavian smuggling, but it's just a French acronym for "Office de Lutte Anti-Fraude."
