This is fun

Millions of pounds of frozen assets have been released to the sons of the former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak after Swiss prosecutors dropped an 11-year money-laundering investigation.

No, no, no. Start from the very beginning. Accept all we’re told – it’s very bad that rulers rip off their subjects, tax havens are bad, we must investigate.

OK, but for the law to be in the right place it must be true that some investigations lead to guilt being found, others innocence. Right?

  1. There should be compensation for this. He lost access to his assets for 11 years just on some bean counters whim. They should have sufficient evidence to take to court before they freeze anything.

    Without that there is no repercussions for when they get it wrong.

  2. Call me old fashioned, but the only fair and reasonable solution I can see here is for Alaa and Gamal to drive their war chariots and Nubian archers across the Alps to crush these thieving Turicumites and seize their gold, livestock and toblerones.
