The Belgian billionaire was again hit with another blow after KRA froze another 50 million he sent to a sister of his girlfriend. The money was detected a few days ago after the Kenya Revenue Authority and the Central Bank of Kenya noticed the suspicious transactions that were allegedly unaccounted for.
According to Tuko.co.ke digital news media platform, the high court was requested by the government agencies to block any access to the aforementioned accounts and direct the Asset Recovery Agency to administrate it. The Belgian identified as Merc De Messel had been hitting the news after a further 100 million that was sent in two batches was intercepted after officials believed it was a money laundering scheme.
Several agencies have also enlisted the girlfriend identified as Tabby Kago and her sister believed to be in a relationship with the billionaire as the co-accused in the money laundering case in the high court. This brings the total amount that has been with held to 250 million shillings.
