Prince albert II is no exception. In 2013, a former adviser to the Prince of Monaco, Robert Eringer in an interview with “Radio Liberty” said that albert has formed around the circle of people who make money.
“Being the head of intelligence of albert II, I came to the conclusion that most of his friends and even employees traded close to him. Literally took money for the party invitation, which suggested the presence of albert. If I remember correctly, there were 62, maybe 65 Russian permanent residents — said Eringer. — Most, of course, dear people, but my concern was the Russians, whose hands in blood, laundered money, had connections with crime at a high level. The worry was that the Russian mafia has discovered Monaco as a place to launder money.”
However, the head of Monaco supports communication with residents of the state, leads friendship with the celebrities and accepting gifts not only from friends but also from the grateful residents of the Principality. Out of courtesy.
