The Laundry Man by Kenneth Rijock ( Penguin/Random House UK)

Saturday, December 3, 2011


Six million US Dollars has been seized, by local law enforcement, at the airport in Luanda, Angola, aboard a TAAG Angolan Airlines airliner. The pilot in command, and six crew members of the aircraft, which was bound for Dubai, UAE, have been taken into custody and reportedly charged with money laundering. The were in possession of the funds.

What is most important about this incident is the opinion of a senior law enforcement agent, quoted by local media, that this was not the first time this crew was engaged in such activity. Note also that there are reports of 140 individuals deported from Angola recently, for "money laundering and terrorism."
