MANILA, Philippines - Central African Republic President Francois Bozize has had police detain his son for several days for not paying a 12,000-euro hotel bill, a police source told AFP on Saturday, November 10.
"Captain Kevin Bozize is being detained... on the orders of the head of state," the source said on condition of anonymity.
"He spent a few days at the Ledger Plaza hotel and did not pay his bills for the room, meals and other services. His bills are estimated to be nearly eight million francs (some 12,000 euros, 15,000 dollars)."
The younger Bozize was detained on November 6 and is being held at the investigative arm of the national police (SRI).
"When the hotel manager asked him to pay the bills, he refused. Having been informed of the situation, his father summoned both of them and in front of the manager he (Kevin) confirmed that he stayed at the hotel and said he paid all the bills.
"Both he and the manager were detained by the SRI but after the facts were verified, the manager was freed."
"The head of state then realized that other figures, especially army officers, were in the same situation. He has demanded that they immediately pay their bills or risk being put on trial." - Agence France-Presse
