Colombia: Colombia seizes properties of businessman tied to Maduro

Authorities in Colombia have seized a luxury mansion complete with a spa, tennis court and two pools allegedly belonging to a businessman detained in Cape Verde on U.S. corruption charges related to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.

Images of the home became public as U.S. officials on Thursday blacklisted two Venezuelan brothers who authorities say carried out “corrupt activities” for Maduro’s government around the world, and supported his son.

The house seized Wednesday in the city of Barranquilla is purportedly worth $7.6 million and is registered under the name of a shell company but in fact belongs to Alex Saab, according to Colombia’s chief prosecutor.
