The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Seven years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to aforeigner. We agree that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 55 % would be for me, Therefore after I and my family will visit you in your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
