Suiza devolverá 150 millones de dólares del caso Salinas - Switzerland will return $150 million of the Salinas case. Carlos Salinas de Gortari was Mexican president 1988-1994 (followed by Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León, 1994-2000, and by Vicente Fox, 2000-2006). After he left, in the long-standing tradition, he got rich. His buddy Carlos Slim got the privatized Telmex for dirt. His brother Raul wound up in jail for conspiracy to murder, and anoither brother, Enrique, was murdered, and found with a bag around his head. Some ex-president.
