Meanwhile, the goods without proper storage conditions can rot. In addition, a fine of 1500 manats per day is stipulated for the long-term maintenance of five wagons and one potato truck.
Entrepreneurs believe that the actions of the State Customs Committee are due to the monopolization of this sphere of trade.

Citizens Gasimov Vasif Ismail oglu, Nadirov Emin Soltan oglu, Jafarov Ilgar Judi, Iskandarov Elnur Zeynaddin and Umayev Royal Khasanaga oglu December 23 of last year really imported potatoes from the Russian Federation. From the documents submitted to the State Committee, it follows that the goods were imported by NB GROUP LLC. However, despite the fact that in the submitted documents NB GROUP is listed as an Azerbaijani company legally passing all legal registration procedures, in accordance with the decision of the 2nd Baku Administrative and Economic Court of December 21, 2018, this company illegally used the logo of another company - NB JSC GROUP, than caused her damage in the amount of 200 thousand manat. Moreover, by submitting false information to the State Committee, NB GROUP LLC tried to fraudulently smuggle 350 tons of potatoes into the country. In accordance with article 58 of the Law on the Enforcement of Judicial Decisions, employees of the State Customs Committee seized the goods of NB GROUP LLC.
