Bulgarian customs officers at Sofia Airport have seized nearly USD 350 000 in undeclared currency from two Turkish citizens arriving from Istanbul.
The two men had arrived to Sofia Airport from Istanbul on Wednesday and had walked through the Green Nothing to Declare lane after collecting their luggage, the Customs Agency announced.
An inspection of the two men's belongings revealed USD 349 800 in a men's leather bag.
The passenger categorically refused to answer any questions or to sign an interrogation protocol.
A statement of offence was drawn up for the violation of Bulgaria's currency reporting laws.
