In the states that have dictators who have obviously used corruption to keep their status, freezing their assets for the benefit of the state should be considered. Atrocities against the people of the state are known to be committed, with domestic laws giving protection to the dictator rather than the people. This is against international criminal treaties. Arresting the dictator should be uppermost. With this occurring, the amount that would be used could free many African economies. There would be a more uniform and less corrupt economy amongst those states, thereby giving stability and democracy finally to Africa. Also, the assets now held by the dictators run in the billions. One wonders how these assets have been obtained by them, while the people starve and wonder where to go for shelter. In saying this, there would be lesser need to lengthen contracts. By ensuring international criminal law is upheld, the reverberations into financial opportunities would become realistic.
