Senegalese president Macky Sall's Brother tender his resignation

Senegalese President Macky Sall’s brother announced Monday that he resigned from his position as head of the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) after been implicated in a corruption case by a BBC investigation released earlier this month.
According to the British channel, a company led by Aliou Sall in 2014 received a bribe of $ 250,000 from Frank Timis, an Australian-Romanian businessman whose company, Timis Corporation, won two gas contracts.
The case has been in the headlines of the Senegalese press in recent weeks and provoked demonstrations in Dakar, casting a shadow on the beginning of the second term of Macky Sall.  Senegalese justice has opened an investigation.
The scandal has international implications, with the British oil giant BP agreeing to pay Timis Corporation $ 250 million in 2017 for a stake in the natural gas fields.  BP assured to have taken all precautions before signing the contract.  Timis denies any wrongdoing.
Aliou Sall, who denies accepting a bribe, denounced in a statement a smear campaign aimed at making him “the public enemy number one”.
