Judgment of the Court of Justice in the case Prankl.

Article 7(1) and (2) and Article 9(1) of Council Directive 92/12/EEC of 25 February 1992 on the general arrangements for products subject to excise duty and on the holding, movement and monitoring of such products, as amended by Council Directive 92/108/EEC of 14 December 1992, must be interpreted as meaning that, where goods subject to excise duty that have been smuggled into the territory of a Member State are transported, without the accompanying document prescribed in Article 7(4) of that directive, to another Member State, in the territory of which those goods are discovered by the competent authorities, the transit Member States are not permitted also to levy excise duty on the driver of the heavy goods vehicle who transported them for having held those goods for commercial purposes in their territory.
