SENEGAL-EX-PRESIDENT'S SON
Ex-Senegalese president's son to face graft trial over his multi-million dollar fortune

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 10:19 AM EDT
DAKAR, Senegal


An official says the son of Senegal's former president will be tried for illicit enrichment following an investigation into how he amassed his multi-million dollar fortune.

Soro Diop, an adviser to the Justice Ministry, said Thursday that Karim Wade will be tried in two months, ending speculation that the charges might be dropped.

Wade, who was a minister in the government of his father Abdoulaye Wade, was arrested last April following a months-long investigation into how he amassed a fortune estimated at more than $1.3 billion. He remains in detention.

Diop said the amount Wade will be accused of illegally amassing has been reduced to around $700 million.

The former president was voted out of office in 2012 and several officials in his government have been charged with illicit enrichment.
