US to Setup Swiss Trust with Stolen Afghan Funds


The Biden administration says $3.5 billion in frozen Afghan funds, which it previously attempted to give to families of the 9/11 attacks, will instead be put in a trust in Switzerland. The trust will be used to stabilize Afghanistan’s economy.

The UN and various NGOs and humanitarian organizations urge the US to make all of the confiscated funds (which belong to the Afghan citizens) to be returned to Afghanistan’s central bank, as the funds are vital to addressing the current and looming humanitarian crisis in the nation which has been under nearly four decades of constant war and occupation. According to the UN 6 million Afghans are at risk of famine, with over 95% of the population suffering from food insecurity.
