ERBIL-Hewlêr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — Saman Sabir Barzani, Kurdistan Regional Government KRG Massoud Barzani’s nephew and the proprietor of “Zagros Company”, lugged twenty million USD dollars in company with his family through Erbil International Airport to the United States, according to a critique published by Kurdistan post website.

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.

Many KRG officials are implicated in conducting illegal activities in Ankara, Lebanon, Swiss, US and Germany. Money laundering, prostitution, gambling, and embezzlement top list.

In 2008, US government’s officials had intercepted 50 million US dollars in New York Airport, belonging to Patriotic Union of Kurdistan. Funds were released later to Quabad Talabani, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani’s son and KRG representative to the US, after Bahram Salih, the incumbent premier in Iraqi Kurdistan Region, had to call Washington and verify the finances.
