Revenue seize over €107,000 cash at Dublin Airport

On Monday (31/10/2022), at Dublin District Court, Revenue officers were granted a three-month cash detention order by Judge Vincent Deane. This followed the seizure on Sunday (30/10/2022) of over €107,000 at Dublin Airport.

The cash was discovered, as a result of routine profiling, when Revenue officers stopped and searched a passenger prior to boarding a flight to Istanbul, Turkey.

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.

Investigations are ongoing.

This seizure 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.
