lugged twenty million USD dollars in company with
his family through Erbil International Airport to

Major Sirwan Ali Reza, Erbil International Air port
director, revealed that this is the 4th time over
the course of that last 3 months that Saman Barzani
has transferred millions of dollars to Gulf,
Europeans states and United States.
According to confirmed accounts by airport
officials, Barzani has dispatched fifteen million to
Paris and another twenty million to Lebanon just
since last month.
Saman Barzani has allegedly purchased a villa worth
of millions in the state of Virginia, USA.
Masrour Barzani, Chief of KDP intelligence services,
(the infamous Parastin), has commissioned an
investigative panel to probe 20 Airport staff
members pertaining to the leaked information.

illegal activities in Ankara, Lebanon, Swiss, US and
Germany. Money laundering, prostitution, gambling,
and embezzlement top list.
