MOSCOW, September 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Khimki city court of the Moscow region on Wednesday sentenced a flight attendant of an American air company to a fine worth 220,000 rubles ($ 7,000) for an attempt to pass through the customs with more than 8 million rubles worth of undeclared jewelry at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.
A source at the Moscow Inter-Regional Prosecutor’s Office for Transport told Itar-Tass on Wednesday that Suzanne Dicker, a 50-year-old U.S. citizen, was found guilty of huge tax evasion.
In March 2012, Dicker, a flight attendant with the Delta Air Lines, arrived at Sheremetyevo airport by a flight from New York. She tried to walk through the “green corridor” or green channel, which is for travelers who have no goods to declare, with 15 undeclared jewelry pieces with inserted diamonds and two brand-name watches for a total sum of 8 million rubles. However, a customs officer stopped her.
Dicker was supposed to have paid at least 3.5 million rubles in taxes for the jewelry, which had been placed in plastic bags and attached to her coat lining.
She could have faced a fine worth from 300 to 500 thousand rubles.
Dicker’s sentence hasn’t become res judicata yet.
