The Serbian police has seized 36 tonnes of meat and processed meat products smuggled into Serbia proper from Kosovo, a press release said on Thursday.
It said that the police in Jagodina seized the meat and arrested six people suspected of smuggling it from Kosovo. The meat was bought in Kosovo, smuggled across the administrative boundary and sold for cash without a declaration of origin.
The meat was trucked in by a driver, who is still at large, navigating roads with information from two of the arrested suspects to avoid the police.
The meat was seized from the meat lockers of two companies.
