Amlo seeks new powers to seize cash

- +

The Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) will step up efforts to control the movement of money in and out of Thailand by seizing all cash which travellers fail to declare at the airport. 

Travellers could find they lose any cash which they fail to declare in excess of the $20,000 (641,000 baht) limit.
