The Department of Justice has frozen more than $458 million in corruption proceeds hidden in bank accounts around the world by former Nigerian dictator Sani Abacha and his co-conspirators.
On Wednesday, DOJ officials announced the seizure of proceeds, calling it the largest such action in U.S. history.
A civil forfeiture complaint unsealed in federal court in the District of Columbia said about $313 million in two bank accounts in the Bailiwick of Jersey and $145 million in two bank accounts in France were frozen.
The wheels of international justice turn slowly but they surely turn.
