After a three-year campaign, the Department of Justice is getting tens of millions in assets from the son of an African dictator accused of corruption, but not one of his most sought-after prizes: one of Michael Jackson’s crystal-encrusted “Bad Tour” gloves.

According to a settlement agreement announced Friday, the Justice Department has required Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of Equatorial Guinea dictator Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mbasogo and the country’s Second Vice President, to relinquish a Malibu, Calif. mansion, a Ferrari, and several life-size statues of the late pop star, in total valued at $30 million. However, the dictator’s son may keep Jackson’s crystal glove, a jacket used during the “Thriller” tour, and a Gulfstream jet, as they remain outside the United States.

According to a Justice official, should the memorabilia reenter the U.S., it will be subject to seizure by the government. Also, Nguema Obiang must still compensate for the value of the items by paying $1 million to the U.S. government, to be used “for the benefit of the Equatorial Guinean people.”


The DOJ originally took action against Nguema Obiang in 2011 as part of its Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative, announced by Attorney General Eric Holder in 2010. The initiative is “aimed at combating large-scale foreign official corruption and recovering public funds for their intended – and proper – use: for the people of our nations.”

OMG these sons of bitches are guilty of moving money INTO the USA. And its somehow our business to worry about how they got that money and where they spend it.

Inge Bongo once rented a home from Sean "P. Diddy" Combs for $25,000 per month and was seen on a VHI program "Really Rich Real Estate" shopping for a $25 million dollar home in California.

Now estranged from her husband, she is speaking out against what she said was massive corruption of the oil wealth in the country. She told ABC News that the Bongo family "wakes up in the morning and decide what are they going to buy, but it's at the expense of their character."

"Shop and shop and shop," said Inge. "They charter 747s and fill them. Everybody would get an envelope and you could buy your car and whatever you want. There were fleets of Porsches."

Oil-rich Nigeria and Angola are also featured in the report. The American wife of former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar helped him transfer more than $40 million dollars into U.S. banks.
