What state must a country be in if its highest representatives not only stash away huge sums in foreign accounts, but also have passports from foreign countries? How can one then assume that they exercise unconditional loyalty to their state, if at all? One of the root evils for the probity of politicians are countries like Switzerland or Panama and other places where money can be stashed away and hidden. In this way, disloyal politicians can protect themselves if they are held accountable in their own country. They can flee abroad and live a luxurious retirement there with their ill-gotten gains and hidden wealth.
