Another Irish haulier has been charged with smuggling nearly £ 2 million worth of vodka disguised as Evian water and vinegar. Kieran Hughes, 55, faces 15 charges of importing spirits across the English Channel. He is standing trial in Maidstone Crown Court with seven truck drivers caught with quantities of alcohol at Dover Eastern Docks in 2011 and 2012. The prosecution has accused Hughes of creating three fake companies to conceal illegal activities, providing documents to customs sealed trucks contained Evian Mineral Water, vinegar and Chinese food. The Prosecutor told the court “There are huge profits to be made from smuggling alcohol. Some truck loads were worth £100,000 each.” The case continues.
