The Customs Department has once again made an undeclared cash seizure at the Malta International airport, in a record breaking year for the department.

Customs Officials stopped a Singapore national whilst screening passengers arriving from Istanbul at MIA. The passenger’s luggage was passed through the x-ray machine and flagged as suspicious.

Upon search, €16,500, as well as 2397 Singapore Dollars were found in the passenger’s luggage.

The Police Economic Crime Unit was promptly informed and the equivalent of €10,000 was returned to the passenger, with the rest being withheld pending investigations.

The passenger was taken by the Police and is expected to be arraigned in court this week.
