Two Czech nationals caught at London’s Heathrow airport bound for Dubai with 1.2 million pounds ($1.58 million) in their suitcases have been charged with money laundering, the British government said on Friday.

The pair, a man aged 37 and a woman aged 26, were stopped by border officials at 0900 GMT on Nov. 8. The banknotes were found in three suitcase and two hand-luggage bags.

“Clamping down on the export of undeclared cash from the UK is vital in our fight against organised criminal gangs,” minister Chris Philp said in a statement.
