The doctrine of odious debt : a solution for post apartheid South Africa
Creditors "loosely lend" funds to third world nations controlled by despotic governments who in turn use the funds for their personal gain. According to the Doctrine of Odious Debts, debts incurred through the interests of corrupt leaders are odious and not enforceable. South Africa is a third world nation that is hindered from progress because they are drowning in debts incurred during the unjust apartheid era. This research examines the application of the doctrine of odious debts to South Africa and the legal effects of its application.
