Abstract: 

On December 23, 2019, a court in Luanda, Angola ordered an asset freeze of the personal bank accounts of Isabel dos Santos, her husband, Sindika Dokolo, and Mario da Silva in Angola, and the stakes they have in nine Angolan firms as a result of the alleged losses they caused to the Angolan government of over $1 billion.[1]  Dos Santos is the wealthiest woman in Africa and is the daughter of former Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos.
