A SYRIAN refugee in Germany has been dubbed a "hero" after handing in $75,000 he found hidden in a wardrobe given to him by a charity after he was granted asylum.
German tabloid Bild reported the money would have enabled 25-year-old "Muhannad M" to bring his two younger brothers to Germany if he had kept it.
"But Allah would never allow it, to finance your own interests with someone else's property," he said.
Under German law, Muhannad is entitled to a reward of 3% of the total sum.
As well as the cash, he found bank account books worth more than $150,000.
