On 22 June, the Wall Street Journal reported that prosecutors say the condo was bought with money misappropriated from a state-owned oil company. Denis-Christel Sassou Nguesso, whose father has been president since the late 1970s, transferred millions of dollars through an unknown associate to bank accounts in South Florida to buy the condo. It is said that it is not clear why prosecutors, who were assisted by Homeland Security Investigations, are not trying to seize a second property too. The US Attorney’s Office declined to comment.
