Butler Defence Solutions
Dublin Port Customs unveiled a new scanner van last week, which was supplied to them by Butler Technologies. It is hoped that the new ZBV scanner will help to tackle smuggling and fraud in Ireland.
The new scanner was part-funded by a grant from the European Anti-Fraud Agency, OLAF, under its Hercule III Programme. Revenue Commissioner, Mr Gerry Harrahill expressed the thanks of the Revenue Board to OLAF, for their financial support in the acquisition of the new scanner.
Speaking of Revenue’s role in safeguarding Ireland’s fiscal, social and economic welfare, Mr. Harrahill said that 'with continually changing economic and business environments, Revenue’s challenge is to constantly anticipate emerging risks and respond to them effectively. Revenue implement customs controls in a manner that supports legitimate trade, while effectively managing compliance risks and tackling illegitimate trade.'
