 here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after five years, the=

request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the f=
act that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next=
 of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as=
 foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % wi=

for<BR>;me and my woman colleague. There after I and my&nbsp;family will vi=
