Customs officers at Sofia Airport seized USD 43,000. The undeclared sum was found in a 36-year-old Lebanese national with initials M.I., who was travelling with a flight to Beirut.
The man passed the ‘green corridor' but said he has nothing to declare before the customs. The following check-up revealed he was carrying some USD 43,000 in the pockets of his jacket, packed in cuts of USD 100.
The passenger gave no explanation why he did not declare the money. He was drawn a statement under the Foreign Exchange Act.
