After the indictment of Nuri al-Maliki… UAE detonates a surprise for the return of “dollars”
Dubai police in the UAE on Wednesday issued an official statement on the rolling video of billions of dollars in aircraft.
Colonel Faisal Issa al-Qasim, director of the Dubai Police’s Security Media Department, said the funds were not for any Arab official as he had promoted, but for an African gang that tried to defraud the person in the video.
“The African gang tried to defraud the person by identifying them through social media, and then communicated with them and tempted them to double their money, luring him to an apartment containing counterfeit dollar boxes, and then filmed him in an attempt to blackmail him and give them money, then hurried To inform the General Department of Criminal Investigation and Investigation which in turn has taken the necessary measures to arrest them. ”
Colonel al-Qasim said that “the person would have fallen victim to the gang without his awareness and the speed of notification to the General Directorate of Investigations and Criminal Investigations, which in turn hastened to uncover the truth.”
Maliki and Gaddafi accusations
The whirlwind of “billions of funds” began when the Lebanese media, Maria Maalouf, published a video to seize funds filled with “billions” of dollars, by the UAE authorities.
“Security authorities at Dubai airport seize a shipment of funds full of dollars stolen from the Iraqi treasury,” Maalouf said.
“The shipment is estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars aboard a private Iraqi plane, belonging to Nuri al-Maliki, which he intended to smuggle to a European state.”
“These funds are equivalent to the budget of 10 Arab countries for five years,” she said.
But the leader of the State of Law coalition and former Iraqi Prime Minister, Nuri al-Maliki, spoke about his relationship to a video of “boxes filled with billions of dollars.”
Maliki’s bureau chief, Hisham al-Rikabi, said in a tweet that there was no link between the former prime minister and the “billions of funds.”
“Your lies will not fool anyone anymore. I think this passage is old, and the owners have nothing to do with it,” Rikabi said.
“According to the information, these funds are Libyan smuggled, belonging to the era of the Gaddafi regime.”
The video returned to another case of controversy, after linking the director of al-Maliki’s office that video to the late Libyan Colonel, Muammar Gaddafi, before issuing a statement Dubai police.
