The police found 255 kilos of banknotes (€12.5 million) this spring in an apartment in Eindhoven. The man living there for free says he knows nothing about it. The judiciary calls him the guardian of fortune and wants him for six years in prison.
The suspect Irakli I. (36) became homeless years ago. He worked illegally in Utrecht, but had to knock on his mother’s door again and again for support. “I was ashamed”, the suspect said to the judge on Wednesday. He then went to look for a cheap house in Eindhoven. “In a kind of café.” But where exactly and with whom, he didn’t dare to say at all. “They are not my friends. An incorrect explanation can have consequences.”
