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.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
