Customs officials have caught a passenger who had just arrived in Malta from Bucharest, Romania, who was carrying a bank draft of €75,600.
He was stopped at random by anti money laundering officials and when they asked him how much money he had in his possession, he replied that he was not carrying any cash.
He was therefore taken to the Customs office and from a search carried out on the passenger and his belongings he was found to be carrying bank draft of €75,600.
The passenger was then passed on to Police custody for further investigation..
In a statement, the Customs Department reminded passengers that they are obliged to declare if they are carrying more than €10,000, which includes both cheques and bank drafts. It said that similar laws apply in many countries around the world.
