Three airplanes produced by Pipistrel in Slovenia were on their way to Kazakhstan's KazAviaSpectr plant. However, the buyer had failed to pay the customs clearance fee for the airplanes. As a result, a criminal case over customs and tax evasion was opened against the plant. According to the Karaganda customs, the seized airplanes were sent to a temporary storage warehouse.
Now the buyer has to pay $175 thousand in customs and taxes.
The plant has provided no comments on the incident so far.
