A money laundering investigation has been launched into accounts belonging to ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali

A money laundering investigation has been launched into accounts belonging to ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his family, Swiss prosecutors said.

The Federal Prosecutors Office said the accounts blocked two weeks ago contain tens of millions of Swiss francs.

Prosecutors office spokeswoman Walburga Bur said the probe may take time as some of the cases were complicated.

Zurich weekly NZZ am Sonntag reported that Swiss authorities were alerted about the money laundering allegations by financial institutions.
