Swiss investigates accounts of Tunisia’s ex-president

30 Jan 2011

(MENAFN) Swiss prosecutors reported the launch of investigations into bank accounts belonging to the previous Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his family in a campaign to prevent any money laundry attempts, reported AP.

The Federal Prosecutors Office announced that earlier this month, bank accounts belonging to the ex-president and his family were blocked. The office reported that tens of millions of Swiss francs were saved in these accounts.

The office said that investigations were not expected to be conducted and finished in a short period of time due to the complexity of some of the investigated cases.

The office had previously said that it received legal claims from several financial institutions regarding the bank account of Ben Ali and his family.
