SEYCHELLES BEGINS PROBE OF SENATE PRESIDENT AND WIFE FOR ALLEGED MONEY LAUNDERING

Premium Times in Nigeria reported on 22nd June that authorities in Seychelles have opened a criminal investigation into the multimillion dollar assets which Senate President Bukola Saraki and his wife, Toyin, are believed to hold through offshore shell companies in tax havens.  They are being targeted for their “suspicious” use of offshore shell companies as uncovered in the Panama Papers investigation.  Investigators at the Seychelles FIU said they are interested in determining whether or not Mrs Saraki stood as a front for her husband in the ownership of some of the offshore holdings linked to the family.
