Ireland To Return Frozen Abacha Funds To Nigeria by dre11(m): 5:14am On Aug 14, 2020
Ireland has signed an agreement with Nigeria for the return of funds misappropriated by Nigeria’s former leader, the late General Sani Abacha, who ruled the country from 1993 until his death in 1998.

The Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) took part in an international operation linked to the case which led to the freezing of over $1 billion of assets worldwide, of which approximately €5.5 million was identified in a Dublin-based bank account.

The funds were frozen in a bank account in Ireland by CAB in October 2014. After an application by the Nigerian authorities last year, the High Court earlier this year made an order providing for the return of these assets to Nigeria, subject to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two governments.

Minister for Justice Helen McEntee said the return of the assets would be “a concrete demonstration” of Ireland’s commitment to international cooperation in the fight against corruption.

The MoU, a first for Ireland, is in line with its international obligations as a signatory to the UN Convention Against Corruption.

The conditional cash transfer has to start again.

This Abacha just saved for raining days.

All these countries returning the loot have already made so much interest before remembering us.


Sysdatek:


The swiss have made billions of dollars on abachas loot alone

Sadly this money will be pammed on arrival

More reason why our corruption is in the fantastic category since it's beneficial to european nations.

It is guaranteed that money will be relooted and send back to sender by current looters

In the nearest future, Nigeria will be using money of Babangida, Obj, Buhari, Tinubu, Orji Kalu, Atiku, Ganduje, Fashola, Patience Jonathan, Dangote, Wike, Amaechi, Ayade and all who thinks they are looting this country, to run the economy. Mother Earth has an interesting way of recompessing.

Some government people in high places don dey gallivant in happiness about another stash of money to loot.

But someone in Aso Rock have once given opinion that Abacha did not steal our money. Is he still standing by it? Anyway these days, there could be smoke without fire. What do we know again. They'll believe anything! Just maintain your mein.
