Djibouti: Two Officials Arrested in Alleged Money Laundering Scandal

Reports indicate that two senior Ministry Officials have been arrested over alleged money laundering in Djibouti.

Their arrest comes after the State Inspectorate-General conducted an audit which unravelled massive theft of State funds. 

Investigations disclosed the existence of illicit arrangements to embezzle money between some businessmen and officials at the budget ministry.

The officials; Farah Mohamed Osman, deputy director of materials, and Sahal Said Awaleh, head of the ministry’s treasury directorate, are yet to respond to the allegations.

Local media in Djibouti reports that the detention of the officials was followed by the arrest of several local traders and other people.
