As to all thieving and looting felas his loot was eaten largely by many along the way. Look at the large amounts paid out to prominent lawyers contracted along the way. Colossal sums of loot that in the end left him with just a handful. Now where will he get more than the treble amounts in fines to pay the state? He must be regretting and pitting himself while the lawyers who benefited the most enjoy their freedom and the acquired loot. He deserves his hard earned sweet.
