Stolen Cars in Thailand – level 3

11-07-2017 07:00

In Thailand, Thai customs seized 122 cars, 15 of which were stolen in the UK and British authorities had reported stolen and exported there. Now the country is inspecting 300 other vehicles that people also think were imported illegally.

Britain had been looking for a Mercedes and a Nissan, and during a news briefing, Thai customs showed those specific cars to demonstrate that they had been found. The group also found two Lamborghinis that had been partially shipped from the UK and later assembled in Thailand. A Thai importer had tried to ship them out of the country to evade officials.

Difficult words: seize (when officials take something according to a law), news briefing (a report for the news to let people know the progress of something), evade (avoid).
