BELGIUM: Cocaine, cigarettes and R22 refrigerant were amongst a haul of illegal items caught up in a large-scale operation targeting counterfeit goods by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).
 
While Operation Renegade was primarily targeted at the international trade in counterfeit auto spare parts, an additional 400,000 counterfeit goods, including chewing gum, toys, perfumes, headphones, garden appliances and sunglasses, were also halted at the EU’s doorstep.
 
Also seized in the operation were 8,024kg of R22, 56 million cigarettes and 668kg of cocaine.
 
The R22 seizure was found in two shipments during the operation in April - one of 490 cylinders and the other of 100 cylinders. The origin of the refrigerants has not been clearly established, but preliminary investigations suggests that the cylinders were transhipped in Afghanistan and transported to Pakistan.
