A delegation led by the Vice President of Equatorial Guinea – Teodorin Nguema Obiang, son of the longtime president – has had $16 million worth of cash and luxury watches confiscated at an airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil, BBC is reporting.

In October 2017, Obiang was sentenced to a three year suspended sentence in France on charges of money laundering.

Obiang, vice-president of Equatorial Guinea and son of its longtime president, Teodoro Obiang Nguema, arrived on Friday on a private plane at Viracopos airport near São Paulo as part of an 11-person delegation. .
.
Estado de São Paulo reported on its website that federal police found $1.5m in cash in one bag and watches worth an estimated $15m in another. .

TV network Globo said Obiang was the only member of the delegation who had diplomatic immunity as the group was not on an official mission. .

The bags of other delegation members were inspected as Obiang waited outside in a car, it said. Brazilian law prohibits people from entering the country with more than 10,000 reais (£1,800), in cash.
