€7,300 confiscated by Customs Officials at Malta International Airport

Maltese Customs officials have confiscated the sum of €7,300 after a Libyan national en route to catch a flight to Istanbul via Malta International Airport, was apprehended.

Officials stopped the passenger and carried out a search, which resulted in a finding of € 17,300 in various denominations and coins. €10,000 – the maximum amount permitted by law without the need for a declaration – was returned to the passenger, and the rest was confiscated.

In Court, the man admitted to the charges brought against him, where in addition to the forfeiture of € 7,300, he was also slapped with a fine of € 4,325.
