The budget was drawn up by the Provincial Command of the Guardia di Finanza of Sassari, which coordinates the checks at the two airports carried out by the Financiers of the Olbia Group and the Alghero Company, in collaboration with the officials of the Adm Agency.
«The airports of Olbia and Alghero - explains a note from the Command - are characterized by the strong heterogeneity of passengers and the transit of numerous international flights, especially during the summer period. For this reason, different currencies have transited, mainly Euro, US Dollar, Russian Ruble, British Pound, Canadian Dollar, Swiss Franc, Israeli Shekel, Turkish Lira and Moroccan Dirham».
"The activities carried out - continue the Fiamme Gialle - made it possible to contest 24 administrative violations against as many subjects, mostly relating to the omitted currency declaration".
