[h=1]Zitto wants Swiss bank accounts investigated probed[/h]Wednesday, 27 June 2012 Nadia Ramirez The government has been asked to conduct thorough investigation to determine who owns the huge sums of money deposited in Swiss accounts. Money amounting to more than Sh300 billion believed to be from the gas industry in the country is owned by some few Tanzanians.The call was made by Kigoma North MP, Mr Zitto Kabwe, who said the money is owned by about six Tanzanians. We seriously want to know the names of the culprits, he said. He cited a case of India where the government named the culprits and confiscated the money proved to be dirty and used it to fund development projects in the country. Mr Prime Minister, we want the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) to immediately launch an investigation on the accounts, name the culprits and take legal action against them, noted Mr Kabwe. Recently, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) released a story which shows that a total of Sh303.7 billion have been stashed away by some Tanzanians in Swiss banks. On his side, the anti-corruption chief Mr Edward Hosea said Tanzania needs to establish from Switzerland who owns the money and if it is illegally acquired and would consult the Bank of Tanzania (BoT) on the immediate steps to be taken. After we have established where the money originated from, we will follow due procedure and make sure the money is returned home, Dr Edward Hoseah said. We shall use available laws that guide all nations.
