BBC: Spanish raids seize Assad uncle’s assets in corruption inquiry

April 4, 2017

BBC: Spain has ordered properties to be seized and bank accounts frozen in a money laundering investigation linked to the family of Rifaat al-Assad.
Judiciary officials said that the uncle of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad was handed $300m of public money when he was sent into exile in 1984.
Now aged 79, he was placed under formal investigation in France last year.
