 Ex-lawyer Khashoggi found guilty of money laundering in UAE

Asim Ghafoor, a former US lawyer for slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, has been found guilty of money laundering and fined. According to AFP, however, the court overturned his prison sentence. According to the WAM news agency, the lawyer was convicted of “money laundering offenses related to a US tax evasion operation.” A court in Abu Dhabi overturned a three-year prison sentence but increased the fine to five million dirhams ($1.4 million). The accused will be deported to the USA.
