dictators and their CEOs launder money in the West:
Public and private leaders establish a basis for possible escape toUK/US by sending their children to earn degrees at prestigiousforeign universities
By Olga
Many dictators and their cronies
a basis for their escape to the Westand/or foreign university degrees for their children who are expected to returnhome in the meantime to assume key positions. Why would they want to
Their corruption means that when and if they are exposed, they willneed a family basis in a Western country. College-age sons and daughters canand do open the way as they open family banking accounts gain knowledgeabout how to live in safe havens outside of their home country.Buying degrees is accomplished through donations and
to universities under the guise of "charity", but this activity needsto be investigated to assure that it is not unethical, if not illegal.The procedure generally is illustrated in the following three examplesbased in Libya, China, and Syria :(1) Qaddafi, the Libyan dictator who was overthrown last year, made adonation to the London School of Economics (LSE) through the LSE Directorwho facilitated admission and the gaining of a doctorate for
Saif al-Islam
. Later the Director was exposed to questions about having received
$2.3 millon in funds for LSE research and exchange of professors from atyrannical dictator, thus violating at least implicitly the ethical code of LSE.
 After an internal investigation, LSC Director Howard Davies resigned,apologizing for having accepted on behalf of LSE tainted dollars for researchand teaching.
Davies stated:"I have concluded that it would be right for me tostep down even though I know that this will cause difficulty for the institution Ihave come to love. The short point is that I am responsible for the s[chool'sreputation, and that has suffered."
 (2) For Chinese leaders. the most notorious case is that of General BoXilai (who was until March of this year Communist Party Chief inthemunicipality of Chongqing)
and his wife Gu Kailai. They transferred hugesums to England and the USA for the
of their flamboyant son, B
at Oxford and Harvard Universities.Bo is currently jailed for corruption and his wife is charged with havingmurdered Neil Heywood with poison. Heywood, a British
business man
hasbeen called
Drinker, Sailor, Fixer, Spy.
For Bo and Madame Bo, Heywoodlaundered their fortune abroad as well as
admission to Oxford andHarvard for their reckless son.The son, Bo Guage was suspended at Oxford before finally
 and moving on to
JFK Policy School to take an M.A. At Harvardhe became infamous for his life in the fast-lane (literally--with a bright red

parents fell from power inMarch this year, Harvard apparently has tried to hush matters by refusingcomment and making young Bo unavailable so that he can
 Let me add that at least another five generals in China are known to havetheir children in U.S. undergraduate and graduate programs, but thecircumstances have yet to be investigated by academia for these and possiblymany dozens of other suspicious cases.(3) In yet another odd case, 22-year-oldSheherazad Jaafari

 interview with
vicious dictator, Bashir
Assad, in December 2011.After critics took aim at
Walters intervention at Colombia in this case,Walters said she should not have helped Sheherazad in such a manner.Walters stated: "In retrospect, I realize that this created a conflict and Iregret that." Walters said: Sheherazad Jaafari contacted her following the reporter's return from Syria to the United States after her intervie
with “President” Assad and asked for h

rs’ help,
Sheherazad has  faced anger by her classmates because in February 2012 the hacking group Anonymous revealed that Sheherazad had coached al-Assad before the interview about how to describe the violence in Syria,according to e-mails discovered and released by Anonymous.Sheherazad told Walters: "Don't talk ref 
American's (sic) won't care, or understand that. ... American psyche can be easily manipulated
