Hi Omer,
You raise an important issue; managing an orderly transition towards better functioning markets can be challenging. The Tunisian governments have dedicated a special committee to this effort (see : http://www.finances.gov.tn/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=201:gestion-des-biens-confisques&catid=28&Itemid=577&lang=fr), which has been making steady progress even though the process of selling off these firms is still ongoing.

Another important issue is the recovery of wealth. The Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative by the UN and the World Bank (http://star.worldbank.org) has considerable cross-country experience how best to go about this and has proven quite effective in retrieving lost funds.
