Vesco must leave Bahamas: Whither?

Fugitive financier Robert Vesco, ordered to leave his Bahamas refuge hideaway by Dec. 11, may have run out of havens and reportedly fears that any plane he will board will end up in the United States. The multimillionaire who fled the US in 1972 faces charges that he stripped $224 million from his offshore mutual fund, Investors Overseas Services, and made an improper $250,000 donation to Richard Nixon's election campaign. He also said he orchestrated the Libyan government's $220,000 payment to Billy Carter.
