On a charge of being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a restriction on the importation of goods contrary to s.170(2)(b) Customs and Excise Management Act 1979, such restriction being the importation of an endangered species into the EU, it was an offence under English law to be so concerned even if the goods were first brought into the EU in a country other than the UK. * Leave to appeal to the House of Lords refused.
