A woman wanted to introduce kilos of rotten meat to Germany – and was stopped by customs officials. It was a delicacy from Cameroon, she said, according to a press release.
Even from afar, the officials at Dusseldorf Airport noticed an unpleasant smell. The woman had arrived from Cameroon via England. In checking the luggage, the customs officers came across two plastic bags containing seven kilos of cowhide. The meat had stunk and was littered with maggots.
The woman stated that her family wanted to eat meat that was "nice and soft". In addition it did not come: It concerns a veterinary violation, the city Duesseldorf will destroy therefore the meat, communicated the Hauptzollamt. The costs for this must be borne by the woman.
