Man learns about €10,000 cash limit the hard way

A 31 year-old man from Holland has €8,870 confiscated when he landed in Malta because he didn’t know of the €10,000 limit. Kebin Jethro Thiel was arrested with €18,870 in cash at the Malta International Airport.

His lawyer insisted that the Dutch man didn’t know he had to declare his cash since he was travelling within the Schengen area.

The man admitted his mistake and was fined just over €2,200 which was reduced from the money he had to take back.
