Moroccan Customs Seize €20,000 in Undeclared Cash

Rabat- Customs at Tangier Med Port have seized 20,000 in undeclared cash, 133 phones, 7 tablets, and 50 second-hand smartphones.

Customs officers arrested a Moroccan national residing in Spain who was bringing cash into Morocco Tuesday without having declared it to the Administration of Customs and Excise (ADII).

On the same day, the officers arrested another Moroccan residing in Spain smuggling hidden electronic devices into Morocco in his car. The two individuals are under investigation, reported state-owned agency Maghreb Arab press.

Last week, customs officers stopped the smuggling of 870 smartphones.

One of the biggest seizures at the port took place in July, when authorities arrested a Moroccan man who resides in France for carrying dangerous weapons abroad in a trailer.

The 31-year-old suspect, who also holds French nationality, had hidden a rifle and a large amount of ammunition in the trailer. Authorities also seized a cutlass and a military uniform.
