Ammon News - An Amman court has sentenced two people to 21 years in prison each and ordered them to pay JD1.5 million in restitution and fines after finding them guilty of money laundering and defrauding Iraqi businessmen.

An anti-corruption panel at the Amman Court of First Instance found that the two men had used a fake bill of exchange to bilk Iraqi businessmen out of JD493,000. After the two men unlawfully collected the money, they laundered it and refused, after the forgery came to light, to reveal where they had hidden it.

One of the convicts, who both had prior criminal histories involving forgery and fraud, testified in court, while the other, a foreigner, was sentenced in absentia.
