A number of private U.S. firms specializing in White Crimes have a new focus: Tracing the wealth of corrupt African officials around the world and associating the crimes with the names of the people who stole the money from the continent while their people and countries go broke.
According to our White House source in the U.S., the initiative began as a result of a high level appeal began by J. Nhinson Williams in 2010, urging more international involvement in recouping stolen wealth from Africa. Williams, who heads a U.S.-based Jewish international refugee program continues to work with prominent western law firms in this endeavor. Now the effort is paying off. The United States has turned over the list of thieves who embezzled wealth in Nigeria while serving in past Nigerian government. Other lists said to be available include Liberia, Kenya, The Gambia and Sierra Leone.
It is estimated that several persons in past and the current Liberian governments have their names listed and could be prosecuted for White Collar crimes post 2017. Many ex and present Liberian officials have millions deposited in banks in the Middle East, Asia and Europe as well as the United States. Others have bought homes abroad, including a current Liberian minister who said to have paid cash for his home in Silver Springs, Maryland some half a decade ago during the Taylor's regime.
According to unnamed sources, the Liberian list includes people in all three branches of the government.
