PRIZED VIOLIN GROUNDED BY RED TAPE*


Just like Michael Jackson, who once tried to take a Cossak saber out of Russia, U.S. violinist Ernesto Farago ran up against Russia’s peculiar laws on antiques when he tried to take his musical instrument out of the country.

Mr. Farago’s 1940 Italian violin was detained by customs officials at Sheremetyevo airport on the suspicion that he was trying to smuggle it out of Russia.

The incident seems to have been the result of misunderstanding.

Mr. Farago, speaking from his home in Springfield, Virginia, said that he failed to declare his instrument, worth $28,000 because he had been misinformed by customs officials in the arrival terminal.

“I was told by an officer that if I was bringing in the instrument for professional purposes, there was no need for me to declare it,” said Mr. Farago, who had visited Russia to play two concerts in Voronezh.

He has now been separated from his beloved violin for nearly a month, but the saga should soon end happily.



The Culture Ministry received a document from U.S. confirming that this instrument belongs to Mr. Farago and is ready to issue permission to take the instrument out of the country. The Ministry official in charge of the export and import of items of cultural and historical value said that all problems could have been avoided if Mr. Farago had declared the instrument upon his arrival.

It says on the customs declaration form that all valuables of a historical and cultural nature should be declared. This is so they can be taken out of the country again.


(from “Moscow Times”)

*Red tape – official rules that seem unnecessary and prevent things from being

done quickly and easily (syn. bureaucracy)

c) Answer the questions:

1. What happened to Ernesto Farago at Sheremetyevo airport?

2. What was the passenger accused of?

3. Why was the violin detained?

4. Why didn’t Mr. Farago declare his violin?

5. How long did the investigation last?

6. What was Mr. Farago’s mistake?

7. Has the violin been returned to its owner?

8. What can you say about the customs officer who had misinformed

Mr.Farago?

9. What customs regulations can you remember in respect of this incident?

10. Do you think such cases are common?

11. What should be done to avoid such misunderstandings?

 

Task 12.Sum up the information from the newspaper article:

a) Comment on the situation from the point of view of:

 

- Mr. Farago;

- a customs officer from Sheremetyevo airport;

- a Federal Customs Service official;

- a Culture Ministry official;

b) write a brief report for TV news program.
