Gangster launders money in prison

20 June 2007

ANTWERP – The appeal court in Antwerp has convicted Asher Doron (52) of laundering more than EUR 117,000 via his prison bank account. The money was deposited into his account by his brother, his Dutch mistress, and his ex wife.

The public prosecutor says that the money comes from suspect activities and is being laundered through the prisoner’s account. The funds probably stem from a major case of VAT fraud for which Doron was convicted earlier. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison – none of which suspended – for this crime.

Doron had made more than EUR 15 million from the VAT fraud.
