Three attempts to send psychotropes to one recipient were stopped by Belarusian customs officers
During the customs control, undeclared tablets "Modalert 200" were found by the customs officers in international postal items. Two of them were sent from India, and one - from Germany to a resident of Minsk.
Experts of the Customs Laboratory and the State Committee of Forensic Expertise have established that this medication contains a dangerous psychotropic substance modafinil.
As a result of further inspection, the recipient of the postal items had not medical disposal for the use of this drug. The citizen of Minsk refused to explain the purpose of purchasing the tablets.
