A professor of electrical engineering at the State University of New York at Binghamton returned to the United States on Sunday after being detained in Khazakstan for over a month on charges of currency smuggling, the Chronicle of Higher Education reported Tuesday. Victor Skormin, who emigrated from Kazakhstan to the United States in 1978, was arrested at the airport in Astana, Kazakhstan's capital, on Sept. 28 with $14,221 in American bills he had earned for giving two guest lectures in Kazakhstan. Skormin said he was unaware that the sum exceeded customs regulations. The Kazakh immigration service confiscated the cash and held Skormin in the country until a court could hear his case. During the detainment, Skormin, who only has one, partially functional kidney, ran out of his medicine and became ill. He said he was only able to avoid kidney failure because friends helped him secure more medicine. Skormin was found guilty on Oct. 24 and ordered to pay a $2,000 fine but since his money had been confiscated, he was forced to borrow from his doctoral students, according to the Chronicle.
