German authorities are delving into the alleged violation that, according to the local press, Iranian Former Finance Minister Tahmasb Mazaheri may be involved in after having been detained at the German international airport of Düsseldorf trying to enter Germany from Turkey on January 21 in possession of a USD 70-million check issued by Venezuelan state-run bank Banco de Venezuela.

Customs authorities said on Tuesday that having brought in such amount of money was "an irregularity" that might be an offense within the framework of the German customs legislation, EFE reported.

According to customs authorities, any incoming amount above USD 13,580 (either in cash, securities, or checks) in any of the countries of the European Union shall be declared.

Prior to his detention, Mazaheri (59) said that he had only carried USD 6,791 in different currencies.

Meanwhile, Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles Radonski requested the Venezuelan Government on Monday an explanation of the issue.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
