President of Equatorial Guinea’s son detained over plane sale

A son of the president of Equatorial Guinea has been detained on suspicion of selling a national airliner in violation of the law.

According to state media, Ruslan Obiang Nsue is believed to have sold the 74-seat turboprop to a Canary Islands-based firm.

When it was learned that the jet had vanished while receiving routine maintenance in Spain, an investigation was started last year.

The suspect formerly served as the head of the national airline in Equatorial Guinea, a nation firmly controlled by President Obiang Nguema’s family for 43 years.
