Zhenli Ye Gon, a naturalized Mexican citizen who owns a pharmaceutical company had his mansion raided recently. Found hidden inside was $150 million in cash. Zheni is now claiming that government officials were involved in the scheme through his lawyer.
Zhenli said that various party officials had delivered money for him to hide, but he did not provide their names.
He said the government had evidence that Zhenli, 44, had illegally imported 19 tons of pseudoephedrine, a decongestant, and intended to sell it to drug dealers who use it to manufacture methamphetamine, a synthetic stimulant known on the street as “ice.”
