CASH SEIZED FROM MOTHER OF SOCCER STAR TRYING TO LEAVE SPAIN

Ronaldo, and his mother.
Now that we are watching the FIFA corruption scandal unfold, it might be best if compliance officers at banks whose clientele include the world's professional soccer players examine their accounts as well. Here's why: The mother of the prominent European soccer star Christiano Ronaldo, who attempted to depart Spain with €55,000 in cash, was briefly detained by the authorities, and €45,000 was seized from her, after she failed to disclose the origin of the money, when interviewed.

She was permitted to depart with €10,000 the maximum amount that Spain allows travelers to leave the country with, when they do not report the personal movement of currency. Whether there will be subsequent charges filed is not known at this time. What's a grandmother doing with all that cash ?
