Customs seize cash from woman at Shannon Airport

Revenue officers working at Shannon Airport seized €14,000 in cash from a Chinese woman in her twenties.

They stopped and questioned the woman following routine profiling.

She was boarding a flight to London Heathrow and was to travel from there to Hong Kong.

The cash, which was in denominations of €50, €100, €200 and €500 is suspected of being the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activities.

 At Ennis District Court on Wednesday, Judge Patrick Durcan granted a three-month detention order to allow Revenue to investigate further.

These investigations are ongoing.
