A stash of 16.75 billion pounds in cash that could be Saddam Hussein’s secret fortune has been lying unclaimed at a Russian airport since 2007. The 20 billion euros, all in 100 euro notes, is being stored at a heavily guarded depot. It was flown to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport from Frankfurt with no recipient.
According to the Mirror, a security source said it could also be mafia or corrupt officials’ dirty money. Documents reveal that a man name Farzin Motlagh, 45, was the sender of the cash, but has yet not claimed it. The Iranian is reportedly wanted internationally on suspicion of fraud.
