KUWAIT CITY, March 24: The Public Prosecution has lifted the freeze on the assets of several famous personalities accused of money laundering, citing lack of evidence, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting sources. Sources confirmed that other defendants are now preparing their official letters addressed to the Central Bank of Kuwait to request for lifting the freeze on their accounts. Sources disclosed these accounts have been frozen for 10 months.
Sources said most of the celebrities charged with money laundering were able to justify their income by presenting official bills. Sources added the media dubbed these cases as ‘celebrity laundering’ and they turned out to be misdemeanor, not money laundering.
