They opened your package to read your mail?! Is this a standard procedure in Switzerland?
It is standard procedure in almost any country and where goods arrive at customs without a customs declaration sticker.

It is also standard for the receiver to get charged for the privilege - handling and storage costs can be higher than the duty .
