Canada launches audits based on the #ParadisePapers a sequel to the #PanamaPapers So far no prosecutions but a lot cases pending, though they are catching flak for the pace of audits & indictments. #ButNothingsHappening
thestar.com/news/paradise-…
50 cases have progressed to criminal tax evasion investigations at this point. They hired over 1,300 auditors to go after the off-shore shell companies.
But Justin from Canada's government is taking heat for slow playing the cases to avoid prosecutions. But supposedly on 25 auditors are working on the Paradise Papers specifically. Which may be fine if the other 1000+ are auditing the 3200 people identified.

People really need to focus because there is a scheme underway in #Malta to bury two crimes. These crimes go all the way to Castille. Ignore the noise that @MaltaGov & @PL_Malta have become so adept at creating & focus.

Naturally these relate to @keithaschembri 1/
Besides the high profile #17Black & #Egrant, there are 2 magisterial inquiries meant to be underway. They have been underway now for just under 2 years & there is no reason why they should be taking so long other than due to interference & behind the scenes efforts @ burying 2/
Which inquiries & crimes are these?

- Kickbacks in relation to the sale of #GoldenPassports from Brian Tonna to Keith Schembri via Pilatus Bank
- Kickbacks & laundering of proceeds paid to Adrian Hillman by Schembri the disgraced & planted ex-head of Times of Malta 3/

What are the #PanamaPapers?

April 2016, @ICIJorg released 11.5M leaked documents from Panama law firm, Mossack Fonseca.

The rich & powerful—incl world leaders, were hiding their wealth.

Cost: One journalist was murdered—most received death threats.

Many Russians & those closest to Putin were implicated. Putin claimed the leak was a US plot.

The #PanamaPapers also show financial connections between wealthy Russians and:
🔹Wilbur Ross, Sec of Commerce
🔹Jared Kushner, Trump’s SIL & Sr WH advisor

A good read. Yet there’s more & this explains @MaltaGov’s hold on the judiciary.

Over the past 5 years the bench has been stuffed with @PL_Malta cronies including ex-electoral candidates.

Yet there’s more. 1/

theshiftnews.com/2019/01/30/und…
We also discover that the Commission for the Administration of Justice, the body that can discipline judges, magistrates & lawyers, is effectively captured. Worse the lawyer who often handles these types of cases defending @MaltaGov members, actually sits on that Commission. 2/
A judge or magistrate hearing a case against @MaltaGov members or those protected by same including those revolving around #PanamaPapers, will have this person appearing in front of him or her. The same person who along with his motley crew can discipline him or her. 3/

Perfectly normal reaction by senior officials within @MaltaGov (particularly OPM) to a minor court decision shuttering a further avenue for investigation into #PanamaPapers on technical grounds.

The #ruleoflaw in #Malta is fine and there is no #disinformation or spin whatsoever.
Case in point: @anticorruption’s plummeting ranking is also blamed:
Case in point: @VeniceComm's concerns over rule of law are evidently based on one person (previously Daphne, now someone else who dares call them a crook).

Also interesting how impossible threshold for courts is implicitly being dictated: independent.com.mt/articles/2019-…

Nike facing billions in back taxes in the EU accused of gaming Netherlands tax rulings to hide revenue in offshore subsidiaries & accounts. #ButNothingsHappening icij.org/investigations…
Looks like many of the usual suspects were playing the same games including Amazon & Apple. Nike is accused of playing shell games with $12.2 billion in earnings.
The Swamp creatures in several European countries were arranging secret tax rulings that allowed companies to hide earnings from taxation. Used as a way to convince businesses to locate to those nations.

Wikipedia edit histories sometimes throw up some interesting information. For the uninitiated, anyone can edit a Wikipedia page but it will get vetted & corrected at times even by bots. PR gurus or even interested parties themselves often curate pages to avoid negative entries 1/
Let’s take @Keithaschembri’s Wikipedia page as an example.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Sch… 2/
The information on the page looks a little curious and perhaps overly positive (seriously who cares about the Kasco group?). In fact the page is tagged as having “issues”. 3/

@TheJusticeDept revealed the first criminal charges in their #PanamaPapers investigation. But they didn't name 4 of the 5 American clients they allege played crucial roles in offshore schemes.

We revisited the documents and identified them: bit.ly/2SxoYGB
“Client 1”: Marianna Olszewski.

The DOJ describes them as a U.S. citizen who resides in Manhattan and lived in London around 2001, matching our records of interactions with Olszewski. #PanamaPapers
“Client 1” falsely sent $3 million to the U.S. by claiming “the money was the result of the sale of a company, even though, in truth, it was not,” the DOJ stated. #PanamaPapers

Charges in #panamapapers got overshadowed by Flynn doc last night. But international criminal syndicates of the kind described in Mueller’s 2011 speech are being dismantled, brick by brick. archives.fbi.gov/archives/news/…
Even in 2011, the FBI knew a debacle like Trump/Russia could be in the making, by a malevolent state actor like Putin: “[T]he playing field has changed. We have seen a shift from regional families with a clear structure, to flat, fluid networks with global reach.”
”These international enterprises are more anonymous and more sophisticated. Rather than running discrete operations, on their own turf, they are running multi-national, multi-billion dollar schemes from start to finish.”

[1/10] Ieri mattina il quartier generale della #DeutscheBank a Francoforte è stato perquisito da 170 agenti nell'ambito di un'indagine, nata da una costola dei #PanamaPapers, su sospette operazioni di riciclaggio da parte della banca tedesca.

Mesujambas aide claim #SarakiAudio was doctored. LAUGHABLE!

@bukolasaraki should have the option to sue me. Your loss today in Kwara is the beginning of liberation of Kwara

Listen to the audio again

@MBuhari - @bukolasaraki’ on #SoundCloud #np soundcloud.com/user-892164755…
That @bukolasaraki is not denying that was him in #SarakiAudio is commendable.

That @bukolasaraki is claiming #SarakiAudio was doctored is applying the same method @GovUmarGanduje adopted that I roundly criticised please read here 👇
Isn't it an Irony that the @atiku @bukolasaraki and Obigotry gang who condemned @GovUmarGanduje for claiming video was doctored are now claiming #SarakiAudio was doctored by @ogundamisi

@bukolasaraki should be MAN enough to own up to his recklessness. Kwara is now Free from him

As scientists. we are tasked with the advancement of humanity as a whole. If this task is in jeopardy, we cannot, should not, and may not stand idle by. No matter whether this is due to individuals, groups, governments, or even humanity as a whole in a suicidal fit.
This starts with things like #cumexfiles or #PanamaPapers - billions worth of the resources have been stolen from the public which means many millions worth of resources from science - science which, quite literally, saves lives and betters the live of everyone.
This goes on with excessive surveillance and restrictions on individual freedoms. Only if you are used to think and act freely, without fear of repercussions, in all things, you have the independence of thought and audacity to create truly new insights.
