Firm coordinates defence of Egyptian businessman in Swiss money laundering investigation

Peters & Peters is acting for one of the wealthiest individuals in the world in relation to a money laundering investigation in Switzerland, which arises from the client’s prosecution for corruption in Egypt. The client’s assets were frozen in Egypt and Switzerland and he was made subject to an INTERPOL Red Notice. Thus far, the firm has been successful in securing the removal of the Red Notice, the lifting of the Egyptian asset freeze and the unfreezing of $17 million of the client’s Swiss assets.
