National Day Against Smuggling

A crime that affects all major Brazilian cities: smuggling. On the National Day to Combat Smuggling, several vehicles, including Rede Globo's Bom Dia Brasil, broadcast reports on the main figures of the criminal smuggling industry.

Cigarettes represent almost 70% of all smuggled products. And with cigarettes alone, Brazil fails to collect R $ 4,5 billion in taxes. Smuggling enters the country mainly through the Foz do Iguaçu region and is distributed to all states.

The Federal Public Ministry estimates that only between 5% and 10% of all smuggled products entering Brazil are seized. This is partly explained by the extent of our borders. The Brazilian authorities are responsible for inspecting an area that extends over 17 thousand km², passing through 11 Brazilian states and 10 countries, including Paraguay, the main supplier of smuggled goods.

The Fronteiras Institute for Economic and Social Development, which works in Foz do Iguaçu, spent seven months preparing a study. “It is organized crime, they are large gangs. Extremely specialized who take this product from here on a large scale and take it to Brazilian capitals ”, says IDESF president Luciano Stremel Barro.

Correction note: In the report aired on March 3, 2015, Bom Dia Brasil reported that Brazil fails to collect R $ 4,5 million in taxes. In fact, the value is R $ 4,5 billion. The information was corrected at 12:15 on March 3.
