Switzerland returns $700m Abacha's loot
Switzerland is set to expose public officers who stashed away looted funds in the country's banks,
just as it announced yesterday that the country new laws did not allow anonymous bank accounts in Swiss banks.

The Swiss Government also announced that $700 million, out of the reported $1 billion loot stashed in the country's banks belonging to the late head of state, General Sani Abacha had been returned to the Federal Government.

Swiss Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Hans-Rudolf Hodel, said this at a press briefing in Abuja yesterday.
He spoke against the backdrop of a proposed seminar on Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism,

Hata kama za Tanzania zikirudishwa bado zitakuwa ni kitendawili! Mbona change ya rada ilirudishwa. Lakini nani ana uhakika na matumizi yake? CCM isipoondoka madarakani endeleeni kuhesabu maumivu!!!

Sani Abacha

OK HIZO ni KUTOKA ONE BANK of MANY....

In a report, the Swiss Federal Banking Commission said 19 banks had dealings with his regime and, although they did report their suspicions of money-laundering to the Swiss authorities, they should not have accepted the money in the first place. Six banks - three branches of Crédit Suisse plus Crédit Agricole Indosuez, Union Bancaire Privée and MM Warburg - were singled out for failing to run adequate checks on new accounts, including those opened by General Abacha's two sons.

Sani Abacha seized power in Nigeria in November 1993 and ruled until his sudden death in June 1998.

BBC News -- The late Nigerian dictator Sani Abacha and his family stole $4.3 Billion from public funds during his four and a half years in power, the Nigerian Government says. The announcement by President Olesegun Obasanjo is the first time he has put a figure on the fortune illegally transferred from public accounts by Nigeria's previous rulers.

The Swiss authorities have frozen $645 Million in bank accounts belonging General Abacha and his associates while they conduct an investigation - This is the Amount returned....


*** Help is coming, notably from the Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative, or StAR, run by the World Bank and the United Nations.

Abacha is reported to have stashed away $5 billion in Swiss banks. The return of $700 million is a joke.
