A fine for expired metamizole in auto’s first-aid kit

first-aid-kitFinnish custom officials fined a couple crossing the border to finland at Salla an equivalent of $20 for having a few tablets of outdated metamizole (a very common analgetic in Russia) in their car’s first-aid kit.

Apparently expired medicines are legally classified as “hazardous waste” in Finland, with all the consequences.

Guess all that Syrian migrant business made the normally calm Finnish border patrol guys irritated and over-zelous in performing their duties.
