The Gen­eral Cus­toms Ad­min­is­tra­tion an­nounced that it seized an un­de­clared 248,000 USD and 200,000 RMB in cash at Buyant Ukhaa In­ter­na­tional Air­port. A search of a carry-on bag­gage of a pas­sen­ger on a flight from Beijing to Ulaan­baatar on Oc­to­ber 12 re­vealed the large amount of un­de­clared cash.

An X-ray scan of the bag­gage re­vealed large amounts of cash and led to sus­pi­cion by bor­der agents. Upon fur­ther in­spec­tion, cus­toms found that the un­named Chi­nese cit­i­zen had not de­clared that he was car­ry­ing cash in­stru­ments more than the 10,000 USD limit that is al­lowed to be car­ried un­de­clared.

Sub­se­quently, the Gen­eral Cus­toms Ad­min­is­tra­tion has opened an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mat­ter. The at­tempt to smug­gle money in­stru­ments un­de­clared into Mon­go­lia vi­o­lates Ar­ti­cle 11.29 and Ar­ti­cle 22 of the Law on In­fringe­ment.
