French court jails Equatorial Guinea leader’s son for embezzlement

A French court on Friday found the son of Equatorial Guinea’s President guilty in absentia for using money plundered from his country to buy property and luxury cars in France.

Teodorin Obiang, the eldest son of President Teodoro Obiang and a vice-president himself, was also handed a three-year suspended prison sentence and a suspended 30 million euros ($35 million) fine.
The Paris court found Mr. Obiang, 48, guilty of embezzlement and ordered the confiscation of more than 100 million euros worth of his French assets.
Mr. Obiang denied the charges.
The case is the first of several to reach court in a broader judicial investigation into allegations of illicit acquisitions in France by long-time leaders and family relatives in several African countries including Gabon and Congo Republic.
Mr. Obiang was first put on trial in January, but the case, 10 years in the works, was postponed after his lawyers argued they had not had enough time to prepare his defence.
Mr. Obiang’s luxury residence on Paris’ Avenue Foch – a grand, sweeping road near the Arc de Triomphe often favoured by wealthy African expatriates and politicians, was among the assets scrutinised during the trial.
The property, bought for 25 million euros in 2005, had a gym, hair-dressing studio and disco with cinema screen.
Paris prosecutor, Jean-Yves Lourgouilloux, said Mr. Obiang’s “fraudulent spending” amounted to more than 150 million euros.
His father, President Teodoro Mbasogo, has ruled Equatorial Guinea, a former Spanish colony, for more than three decades, making him one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders.
The rights groups have labelled his administration as one of the world’s most corrupt regimes.

Cleanliness is from faith andit is one of the necessary things that must be taken care of. Life without hygiene becomes full of epidemics and diseases, and from here all housewives care about cleanliness and use a cleaning company to help them in all house cleaning operations
