I agree ... but here I don't know of anyone that has risked a potential bill for £3000 to get back their £100 knife. What annoys me is that the Customs guys know that too and they know that if they just stonewall and refuse to give an item back the importer will eventually give up and they can add it to their "weapon" seizure statistics. They are just using the fact that they are backed by the State to bully importers who might very well be in the right. I know of at least 1 UKPK that was seized and destroyed in a clear breach of the law ... but there is no guarantee that a judge/magistrate will agree with you and when you look at the costs of loosing it isn't surprising that everyone gives up It ain't right and I fight it ... but it's David vs Goliath, with Goliath holding all the cards.toomzz wrote:Not if I am legally right and can proove it by law.

Hope I'm allowed to post the link in this case.
"Not allowed to enter Germany"???
BS, says who? DHL doesn't determine that, imho.
Don't give up and give them hell.

Indeed, whose the one to decide. IMHO 'the official with the proper knowledge of the law'. I will give them hell.
For now, I am waiting for the official letter with reason of refusing my Ayoob (I don't know the english word for that: Bescheid/beschikking)
After that I will be their personal PITA by sending in a reply with copies of the Boker-site and my purchase-papers.
