The Israel Tax Authority prevented the import of several pieces of Nazi memorabilia because of suspicions that the importer undervalued the items in order to avoid paying import taxes.

The importer, an international collector and merchant, was arrested and freed on bond. Hundreds of Nazi medals, symbols and original document's from WWII were discovered in a search of the man's home. The items were ordered on a German website specializing in such memorabilia.
