Before he died he deposited the sum of 10.7m US dollars (Ten Million Seve= n Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)in a Bank here in Spain. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next= of kin to come over and claim his money because the management of the bank can n= ot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin to the deceased = as indicated in the banking guidelines but unfortunately I learnt that all h= is family died alongside with him at the motor accident leaving nobody behin= d for the claim.
