ROME —

Two Japanese nationals were detained by Italian financial police last week after trying to enter Switzerland with $134 billion worth of undeclared U.S. bonds, mostly Treasury bonds, an Italian daily said Wednesday. The Japanese consulate general in Milan confirmed that the detention had taken place and said it was trying to confirm with Italian authorities whether the two were indeed Japanese nationals and their identities.

According to the report in il Giornale, two unidentified Japanese in their 50s concealed the bonds, including 249 U.S. Treasury bonds each worth $500 million, in a suitcase with a false bottom that was searched by the Italian authorities June 3 when they were in Chiasso, at the border with Switzerland, about 50 kilometers north of Milan. The daily did not say on what charges they have been detained, but the two may have been detained on suspicion of attempting to take a large amount of securities out of Italy without declaring it because the paper said they had not declared the bonds.

Sucks to get caught with that much amount of money on your hands.
God..I wish I were one of their family members, just so they can lend me one billion.
Which is pocket change compared to the amount they were caught with >.<

It's an obscene amount of money, but nobody gives a shit about the poor if they're not one of them.

I doubt that much money could have ended world hunger. Why? Because of corruption. Unless of course you proceeded with doing things yourself, but then you would need to handle so many things, that you'd be forced to get help from others. Which in turn would lead to you having to pay people, to help others. And who knows what motives those people have.....
