Berlin, (IINA) – A Syrian refugee has attracted praise after he discovered a large stash of money in a second-hand wardrobe and turned it to German police citing religious reasons, The Independent daily reported.
Muhannad M., who refused to give his full name, found €150,000 shortly after moving into his new flat in Minden, north Rhine-Westphalia, police reported.
The 25-year-old man had been able to furnish his flat largely due to contributions from charities, and the wardrobe was included among the donations.
While he was cleaning it, he discovered a hidden compartment where two sheets of wood had been screwed together. Inside the compartment he found savings books that were worth €100,000, plus €50,000 in cash.
“Allah would never allow me to finance my own interests with someone else’s wealth”, he said.
Police are now trying to track down whoever put the money in the wardrobe.
“This young man has acted in an exemplary way and deserves great respect”, a police spokesperson said.
