Tunisia: Yacht of ex-dictator’s nephew returned
Tuesday 16 April 2013
The government has recovered a yacht that once belonged to the nephew of the deposed dictator.
The Prime Minister Ali Larayedh and central bank head Chedli Ayari were on hand to receive the yacht of Kais Ben Ali, which had been anchored in an Italian port.
The $626,000 (£400,000) vessel was the latest item belonging to the family of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who was overthrown in January 2011, recovered by the Tunisian government.
On Thursday last week, the government received a cheque for $28m recovered by the United Nations from a Lebanese bank account belonging to the dictator’s family.
