An Iranian citizen tried to smuggle $95,000 from Baku, Azerbaijan’s State Customs Committee said in a message on October 13.
Though the man used the ‘green corridor’ which allows simplified transportation of goods and vehicles through the Azerbaijani border, he was asked to go through the customs again.
Due to suspicious behavior, he was detained before the Baku-Tehran flight departure. His suitcase contained undeclared $95,000.
Investigation has been launched into the case.
