The 18th criminal chamber has announced its decision on the money laundering process in Schorndorf. The decision saw a Dubai gold dealer and his wife with another courier sentenced to between three and a half and 13 years prison terms. Between January 2017 and January 2018, about 45 million euros in illegal funds were transferred, the funds were issued as payments for gold transaction. The prosecutor understood that the three accused men and a woman who worked as a gang actually collected the money in the Netherlands and moved it to Germany where various couriers assisted them in transporting it to Dubai in cash on an airplane. The gold trader and his accused business partner who happens to be a dealer in Schorndorf are believed to have built up a cover system for camouflage, in which gold was actually delivered from Dubai to Germany.
