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.

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

Tutu Alicante is Executive Director of EG Justice, an NGO which advocates for human rights in Equatorial Guinea. He explains why he thinks many people in the country won't be surprised by the latest incident.

The Embassy of Equatorial Guinea in Brazil had not replied to a request for comment at the time of publishing.
