Ill-gotten gains: Rifaat al-Assad sentenced on appeal to four years in prison

-

Published on :

Bashar al-Assad’s uncle, Rifaat al-Assad, was sentenced Thursday on appeal in Paris to four years in prison in the so-called “ill-gotten gains” case.

The Paris Court of Appeal confirmed, Thursday, September 9, the conviction of Rifaat al-Assad, uncle of the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, to four years of imprisonment for having fraudulently constituted in France a heritage valued at 90 millions of euros.

The 84-year-old former vice-president of Syria, who has lived in exile since 1984, was found guilty of “organized gang money laundering, embezzlement of Syrian public funds and aggravated tax evasion”. As in the first instance, he sees all the real estate concerned confiscated by the courts.
