decade.As a result of the death of my father Jonas Savimbi. The

Consequently, I left Angola through the neigbouring country to the
island of Mauritius near the Indian ocean on exile where I was able
to reorganise and flee Africa, I was able to arrange the money in
2 trunk boxes and took it along with me to Mauritius from where I
trans-shipped the money to Europe.The boxes of money were lodged as
