A stash of 16.75 billion pounds in cash that could be Saddam Hussein’s secret fortune has been lying unclaimed at a Russian airport since 2007.

The 20 billion euros, all in 100 euro notes, is being stored at a heavily guarded depot.

It was flown to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport from Frankfurt with no recipient.

According to the Mirror, a security source said it could also be mafia or corrupt officials’ dirty money.

He added that there are other possibilities that the fortune could even belong to Muammar Gaddafi.

Documents reveal that a man name Farzin Motlagh, 45, was the sender of the cash, but has yet not claimed it.

The Iranian is reportedly wanted internationally on suspicion of fraud. (ANI)
