Germany delves into Iranian ex-minister detained over USD 70-million check
According to customs authorities, any incoming amount above USD 13.580 (either in cash, securities, or checks) in any of the countries of the European Union shall be declared
Customs authorities said on Tuesday that having brought in such amount of money was "an irregularity" that might be an offense within the framework of the German customs legislation, EFE reported.
According to customs authorities, any incoming amount above USD 13,580 (either in cash, securities, or checks) in any of the countries of the European Union shall be declared.
Prior to his detention, Mazaheri (59) said that he had only carried USD 6,791 in different currencies.
Meanwhile, Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles Radonski requested the Venezuelan Government on Monday an explanation of the issue.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
