The Unlikely Crusader
This chapter traces how Switzerland has historically attracted such a huge share of foreign wealth. The coverage of kleptocrats' wealth in Switzerland and the various efforts to recover it is roughly divided into three sections. The first deals with the examples of Marcos of the Philippines, Abacha of Nigeria, and Montesinos of Peru over the period 1986–2005. The second part considers some failures, with coverage of “Baby Doc” Duvalier (Haiti), and Benazir Bhutto and Ali Asif Zardari (Pakistan). The third section analyzes the Arab Spring cases, with a brief mention of others involving incumbents in Uzbekistan and Malaysia, to assess the effects of preventive and remedial policy reforms introduced in response to earlier scandals.
