Press Release: Hidden Undeclared cash discovered by Peter

Customs Canine dog Peter has once again led Anti Money Laundering officials to undeclared cash. 

During passenger screenings at the Departure lounge on the Istanbul flight, Peter gave a reaction around a Ukranian passenger. The person was approached by Anti Money Laundering officials and asked how much money he was carrying. 

Not convinced by his answer, the passenger was escorted to Customs Offices, and a subsequent search on the passenger and his luggage resulted in the elevation of 12,770 euros concealed undeclared cash.

The passenger agreed to an out of court settlement and paid a fine on the spot. It is important to note that any passenger carrying 10,000euro or more is obliged to declare them to Customs as per EU legislation. The declaration carries no charges, however failing to declare does.
