The police have been conducting a major raid against members of the Al-Zein clan since early Wednesday morning.

According to dpa information, more than 50 suspects are accused, among other things, of embezzling numerous cars and fraud with corona aid.

Several arrest warrants are to be executed.

Hundreds of officers are on duty.

According to dpa information, the focus of the searches is North Rhine-Westphalia.

There are raids in Solingen, Dortmund and Bochum, among other places.

Cities in other federal states are also affected, including Berlin, Lower Saxony and Hesse.

Leased cars sold

Investigators said that leased cars were embezzled, given new license plates and then sold.

A second investigation complex is about fraud with Corona emergency aid.

Both methods apparently overlap.

The responsibility lies with the State Criminal Police Office (LKA) North Rhine-Westphalia.

There are repeated investigations against members of the Al-Zein clan.

Relatives are currently on trial in Düsseldorf whose villa in Leverkusen is said to have been paid for with money from the job center.

A few days ago, the prosecutor had demanded a six-year prison sentence for the clan boss.

The verdicts are to be spoken on December 22nd.
