The Acting General Director of Anti-Corruption and Economic and Electronic Security announced on Friday that it had detained no one for any financial irregularity.
He said that an American had approached a Customs officer at Bahrain International Airport to inform that he was carrying $11 million. An investigation showed the funds were meant for US Navy salaries in Bahrain and the Gulf. The funds were turned over to the US Naval Command after taking necessary procedures.
The Acting General Director said that any money entered Bahrain in a regulated manner after authorities had followed all legal procedures.
