Salem's daughter and son have been arrested by Spanish authorities on money laundering charges

Spanish authorities have arrested Hussein Salem’s daughter and son and have placed the two under house arrest in Spain, according to Magdy El-Shafie, manager of the Egyptian Interpol.

This arrest came in response to an Egyptian Interpol request and State Security Prosecution to arrest and return them to Egypt as they are accused of laundering huge amounts of money.

Accordingly, the General Attorney’s office is getting the required files ready to get the two back to Egypt.

The Cairo criminal court has ruled to freeze the assets of businessman Hussein Salem, currently in Spain, in addition to eight members of his family also accused of money laundering.
