I really wonder what will become of the Jamaican man who was trying to get away with declaring nothing at the Sangster International Airport in St James, but in fact was travelling with more than US$200,000 or approximately J$18.5 million.
According to reports, this man arrived on a flight from New York and made a false declaration on the customs declaration form, indicating that he did not possess money greater than US$10,000. However, when his luggage was checked this great sum of money was found hidden away in his luggage.
If this man cannot prove how he came by this money, what exactly will happen to it? What was done with the money from the other seizure in September where customs officials confiscated €313,500 or approximately J$37.6 million at the Norman Manley International Airport?
Is this money being used in a constructive manner?
What do you believe this kind of money should be used for? Have your say…
