Yinager Dessie (PhD), governor of the central bank, has confirmed that their assets have been frozen and the case is now under investigation.
The crackdown is taking place at a time when the difference between the legal market and the parallel market has increased exponentially over the last two months. This week, it climbed to 100 percent.
