Vladimir Putin, ex-son-in-law’s property seized by Netherlands : Report

Vladimir Putin: The property is situated in the village of Duivendrecht, which is four miles from Amsterdam.

According to reports, the former son-in-law of Russian President Vladimir Putin had a piece of property confiscated by Dutch authorities. According to The Guardian, prosecutors confiscated the property owned by Jorrit Faassen, a Dutch businessman who was briefly married to Putin’s eldest daughter Maria Vorontsova.

After a collaborative investigation series by the newspaper, the independent Russian news outlet Proekt Media, and the investigative journalism platform Follow the Money, the land was stolen.

The site lies in the village of Duivendrecht, which is four miles from Amsterdam. According to reports, the seizure was carried out by the Netherlands’ National Office for Serious Fraud, Environmental Crime, and Asset Confiscation in connection with a criminal investigation.

Since April of last year, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the European Union and the United States have imposed sanctions on Maria Vorontsova and Katerina Tikhonova, the other daughter of Vladimir Putin.

Authorities recently detained Jorrit Faassen at a Dutch airport on suspicion of “sanctions evasion,” according to Proekt Media. Authorities reportedly seized his laptop and mobile phone. During their father’s administration, Vladimir Putin’s family has mainly shied away from the spotlight. According to reports, Maria Vorontsova wed Jorrit Faassen in 2008.

After Vladimir Putin started the war in Ukraine, Jorrit Faassen, a Moscow resident, lost his ability to construct on the Duivendrecht property after submitting an application two years prior.
