A leading member of the local Somali community who was found with €160,000 in undeclared cash at the airport has pleaded not guilty to money laundering.

Ali Muuse Igaale, 40, was escorted to court from the Corradino Correctional Facility where he has been detained since an arraignment on August 23.

He had been arrested on August 22 while on his way to board a flight to Istanbul after being found in possession of €160,000 in undeclared cash - well above the allowed limit of €10,000.

The suspect, described as a highly trusted community leader, has lived in Malta for eight years. He runs a barber and a clothing outlet in Ħamrun.

His bail request had not been upheld after he failed to supply a residential and business address. Civilian witnesses were also still waiting to testify.

Following further investigation, the police charged him with money laundering, acquiring property through the proceeds of crime and tax evasion. It transpired that he had failed to declare his full income for the years 2018 to 2020.

Prosecuting inspector Oriana Spiteri told the court on Thursday that the source of the €160,000 that had been found in his possession could not be traced.

Lawyers Franco Debono and Francesca Zarb meanwhile noted that their client had ties to Malta and played a humanitarian role by helping fellow Somalis find jobs and settle down here.

 
He could've easily had the biggest come up if he wired the money threw dahabshill back to somalia bit by bit but instead took 160k to a 10k maximum security check kkk

I think he'll get out tho but not with the cash
9/10 criminals get caught due to lack of patience. A Somali who scammed 160k will feel untouchable. Good luck telling him anything lol

He's likely to be detained or released with a limited court mandate , or even worse denied bail and held into custody , money laundering / mule are serious lengthy prison charges.

Each and every country differs depending on their jurisdictions.

This is sad for the poor man.

Of course his freedom is in jeopardy he should forget about the money , they are in different pockets.
