In het recent verschenen rapport ‘Illicit Trade: Converging Criminal Networks’ gaat de OESO onder andere in op illegale alcohol in Nederland. De misgelopen, niet afgedragen accijns door illegale alcohol zou 100 miljoen euro bedragen.

Het hoofdstuk ‘The size, impacts and drivers of illicit trade in alcohol’ start op pagina 213 van het rapport. De samenvatting van de OESO:

‘This chapter presents an assessment by industry stakeholders of the illicit trade in alcohol with a focus on spirits and beer. Transnational criminal networks profit from trafficking and illegal trade in alcoholic beverages, whether by evading the payment of duty on goods or dealing in otherwise unbranded products. It is estimated that billions of dollars from these activities flow through the global economy each year, distorting local economies, diminishing government and legitimate business revenues, and in some cases posing a serious health risk to consumers.’
