It has been reported that the French say they are "watching" Tunisian
assets in French banks.
Shouldn't the US also be "watching" Tunisian assets in US banks? Isn't
it likely that a new government may try to recover looted wealth, or
that there will be civil
judgments against people linked to the previous regime? Does
anyone know what's going on with this? I have seen no mention of this in
"Finance Minister Christine Lagarde of France — a former colonial
overseer of Tunisia — told French radio that Paris is keeping a close
watch on the assets of Tunisians in French banks."
