|US Dollars & gold
Have you seen the video, on YouTube, of the millions of US Dollars, lying on the floor of a home, in Ninevah Province, that Islamic State has seized, and which belongs to former Iraqi Speaker of Parliament, Sunni leader Usama Al-Nujayfi ? It purports to show millions of dollars, in clean, wrapped $100 notes, together with two gold ingots. The Islamic State is making much of the criminal proceeds they allegedly have found. if you have not seen the video, it is also available on the website of MEMRI, at www.memri.org/
If this is true, then the allegations of corruption that were leveled at Al-Nujayfi three years ago could be accurate; it is said that he spent US$600,000 to upgrade his home, and the source of those funds is a puzzle. Was the cash found illegally diverted from America's Iraq reconstruction program, or US aid to the country's military, or kickbacks he received ? In 2011, there were allegations that Al-Nujayfi had taken many trips abroad, which were a mystery, because they were not connected to his position in parliament, but no investigation was ever initiated that I can find.
Please, don't tell me that this individual has multiple bank accounts in Europe.
