Supermodel Bar Refaeli gets busted at Tel Aviv’s airport for bringing an iPad. If you remember, a few weeks ago, Israel had lifted its ban on the iPad (officials initially were worried the wifi would interfere with the Israeli network). Though, apparently in this situation, Refaeli just failed to declare it at customs.
Maybe they should just ban Refaeli instead...We’d love to have here ‘round the clock.
From Huffington Post:
A famous Israeli export is in trouble for her import.
Supermodel Bar Refaeli was caught at Tel Aviv’s international airport this week trying to bring in her newly purchased iPad without declaring it at customs. Items brought into Israel worth more than around $200 are subject to duties.
Refaeli told Israel’s Channel 10 TV that she had an iPad in a suitcase that was lost in transit. She said she didn’t declare the iPad upon entrance to Israel for a brief commercial appearance.
