German customs officers at the airports watch for coffee mugs with Hitler and swastikas, which German tourists bring home from Bulgaria, reports DPA, quoted by BTA.

A spokesperson of the customs at Duesseldorf told the agency that the officers apprehended several such mugs already. According to him, they were being sold at Bulgarian Black Sea beaches. 

He warned passengers that bringing such items to Germany violates German law, which strictly forbids any use and display of Nazi symbols. 

People who already brought such mugs into the country, are already facing court prosecution.
