The open borders in the EU are a blessing to illegal fireworks dealers, says Jan Muijs. Hes holding his heart.
Trade in illegally dangerous fireworks does not pose any problem within Europe. That really dangerous heavy stuff comes mainly from Eastern Europe. The EU is a real blessing for the criminals who trade in it.
With the open borders and by nothing or no one hindered, the fireworks – or rather the explosives – enter our country with “cargo cargo” at the same time. With some scouts moving forward, the danger of arrest is almost nil. The police must therefore have tips and a single fluke.
fact that thousands of kilos are discovered every year only indicates how many fireworks are actually available. I therefore hold my heart what awaits our country this month from explosions and the damage and suffering that has arisen.
