«We were very attentive to all these issues. Several cruise passengers, so to speak, were reporting to us that they were selling products. There we were confiscating all these products, none of them could be sold, since they did not have the corresponding permit. We even had the incident that, when the operation arrived, the seller started running, leaving all the products,” he noted.
