Kylie and three other suspects were arrested by Belgian authorities on Sunday. They have been charged with “membership of a criminal organization, money laundering and corruption”. A court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday to decide whether they will be held in custody pending trial.
Qatar and Morocco are involved
