2/ This week, we’re focusing on the history of the nation’s ethics laws and how they evolved since the 1950s.
3/ We start with the vicuna coat scandal that occurred under Dwight Eisenhower.

1. Are advanced tax rulings just a mechanism to corrupt the normal application of tax rules to multinational companies? (A quick thread as work avoidance)
2. The attraction, on paper, is that multinational companies get certainty about (some) tax treatment; as do tax authorities, who can then focus their limited resources elsewhere.
3. The risks? That the negotiation over advanced tax rulings is even more unbalanced than the usual negotiation over multinationals' actual tax payments. The tax authority has no threat of demanding audit or payment; and cannot devote the same level of resources.

#NiravModi is just tip of the iceberg. It is a well-known fact that diamond trade is used for money-laundering & that this channels are used to finance terror activities around the globe including in India. Just check the #BlackMoney list from #Belgium?
greatgameindia.com/of-diamonds-an…
So now that media is waking upto #NiravModi's #Belgium connections important question that should be asked is who are these diamond merchants & how many of them are in the #BlackMoney list? Dont be amazed if you find barons on the list financing bollywood.
#NiravModi was setup by London auction houses of Christie & Sotheby involved in auctioning of ancient Indian idols & manuscripts stolen by East India Company spies & hoarded in the storeroom warehouses of British Empire's officers. This goes on even now & is a $5B black market.

A yr+ of digging, & I've found a sh*t ton. Some on characters that I haven’t exposed. Frankly, b/c there’s only so much time in the day.

Who are these two foreign pilots flying around Indian PM in the #seaplane? Shouldn't this be a security issue? Or is it normalization of things to come? Stay tuned for our <thread> on the issue.
2 Is a Prime Minister allowed to fly aboard a single engine aircraft as per GoI protocol? What about one that is flown by foreign pilots? Why cant this #SeaPlane been flown by IAF pilots? More than any protocols entire Indian military is being bypassed here, what does that mean?
3 So the #seaplane in which our PM was flown in came directly from Pakistan & was flown by foreign pilots! And our Indian security forces allowed that???

This is the sorry state of Indian security establishment. Havent they learned anything from #HomiBhabha assassination?

The old plane tracking thread is totally broken. Older flights are still there but come up as a single tweet so if you want to find older flights go to Twitter search and type the person's name or tail number (if known).

Faire de l’investigation une variable d’ajustement économique à France Télé ? Il y a plusieurs choses que je ne comprends pas. Si vous avez des réponses, je suis preneur. Je déroule ⬇️
Pour moi, cette stratégie va à l’encontre d’une tendance qui se dégage dans les médias aujourd’hui : mettre plus de moyens pour enquêter et raconter le monde d’aujourd’hui.
C’est ce que le lecteur attend, c’est ce qui permet à un média d’exister dans un flux sans fin où les contenus circulent sans les marques qui les ont publiés.

I don't study economics, but I do study terrorism, and 'demonetization will end terrorism finance' was one of the most ridiculous bogeys of the entire exercise. #DemonetisationAnniversary
The whole idea of fighting terror finance has been an abject failure in global discourse, not just in India's case. A shift to hawala movements have worked for global terror groups.
Terror finance moved away from intl financial systems long ago. Currency does not matter that much. Terror attacks are not 'expensive', not anymore anyway.
