A total of €45,000 in cash was found in the luggage of a passenger attempting to depart Paphos airport and fly to Stansted airport in the United Kingdom, the customs department said on Friday.

After being tipped off by the police, the customs department searched the passenger’s luggage and found the cash, which had not been declared when the passenger passed through border control.

The money was all seized for further investigation by the customs department to ascertain whether it is the proceeds of illegal activities.
