“Three foreigners of European origin are the subject of legal proceedings for money laundering,” the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
The three individuals would have, through two screen companies, earned money laundering from games of chance. “A sum of 4 MD was seized on June 24 by the authorities as part of this case,” it was said. The ministry adds that the people in question have not ceased their activity, despite the probe.
“A new 1 MD account was seized on September 22 on the order of the judge in charge of the case since May 12,” adds the same source.
The investigation into this alleged economic crime started in May 2022, on the orders of the public prosecutor of the Tunis court of first instance, which instructed the central brigade of the National Guard specializing in economic crimes, to investigate.
To date, 5 MD have been seized as part of this case. “Investigations are continuing,” stated the Ministry of Interior.
