Revenue seize almost €20,000 cash in Dublin Port

Today (18/06/2020), at Dublin District Court, Revenue officers were granted a three month cash detention order by Judge Bryan Smyth. This followed the seizure of €19,700 in Dublin Port on Wednesday (17/06/2020) when, as a result of routine checks, Revenue officers stopped a vehicle boarding a ferry to Holyhead.

The cash is suspected to be the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity and is detained by Revenue in accordance with proceeds of crime legislation.

A Polish man in his thirties was questioned.

Investigations are ongoing.

This routine operation is part of Revenue's ongoing work targeting smuggling and shadow economy activity. If businesses, or members of the public have any information, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
