UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced the creation of a global forum to step up efforts to recover stolen assets.
Speaking at an anti-corruption summit he hosted in London today, he said the forum would bring together governments and law enforcement agencies from countries that have had assets stolen, together with those from countries where assets are hidden.
They will initially focus on returning stolen funds to Nigeria, Ukraine, Sri Lanka and Tunisia.
Nigeria’s President Muhammadi Buhari has demanded the return of stolen assets stashed in the UK, and complained that the process was too slow.
