More than $10,000 of cash confiscated from ex-billionaire Eike Batista as part of an insider trading case is missing, the latest twist in a case where a judge has come under criminal investigation after driving one of the ex-billionaire’s luxury cars.

Officials detected that 27,000 reais ($8,639), $443 and 1,000 euros ($1,083) seized from Batista last month are gone, an appeals court in Rio de Janeiro said in a statement Monday. Police seized more than 90,000 reais as part of a raid last month, according to information on the federal police’s website.
