Switzerland Frees $60 Million in Zardari’s Assets

Well, here's one way to get your assets unfrozen, become president of the country.

Switzerland has released millions of dollars in assets belonging to Asif Ali Zardari, he is expected to be named Pakstan's country’s president next week.

Zardari’s accounts were frozen in 1997 at the request of Pakistani authorities investigating allegations that Zardari had received kickbacks while he was a government official and his wife, Benazir Bhutto, was prime minister.

In June, Pakistan’s attorney general notified the Swiss that he was no longer investigating Mr. Zardari, who leads one of the country’s largest political parties.
