ASSAD’S UNCLE SENTENCED TO 4 YEARS IN JAIL IN FRANCE FOR MONEY LAUNDERING

On 17 June, the Guardian reported that French judges have sentenced the uncle of Syria’s leader, Bashar al-Assad, to 4 years in prison after convicting him of money laundering and misappropriating Syrian public funds to build up a €90 million property empire in France. The court also ordered the confiscation of Rifaat al-Assad’s assets in France as well as property worth €29 million in London.
