Swiss Ambassador to Nigeria: Abacha's Lawyers Made Loot Recovery Tough

AMBASSADOR of Switzerland, Dr Pierre Helg, says the good lawyers engaged by members of the family of late General Sani Abacha have made it difficult for the government of Switzerland to recover the entire $700million statched in 42 banks.

Helg expressed the hope that a member of the family (name withheld) who was arrested in Germany and sent to Switzerland is now assisting the government in identifying new sources of the loots.

He said the late General Sani Abacha did not deposit money in his name, so, the lawyers capitalized on that to drag the issue for over four years. Helg promised that since the $700 million being recovered is the taxpayers money, his country will continue to pursue the issue until it is brought back to Nigeria.
