Even the cat was celebrating @anneapplebaum clarity in an article the other day. There’s so much missing from it though, @FINMA_media provides perfect exhibit 🧵
@CreditSuisse @juliusbaer, Banca Zarattini (@RRamirezVE says hi), Banca Credinvest (@BetancAlejandro’s very own bank), AND Compagnie Bancaire Helvetique have been found to have aided and abetted massive #MoneyLaundering originating in Venezuela’s gargantuan #corruption
But there’s so much more… take @EFGInt, for instance. Not a week’s gone by since @RaulGorrinB took it to @twitter to post evidence of own corruption -$4mn worth-involving EFG

Our pre-print on a #SARSCoV2 #Alpha variant outbreak in a primary #school in Geneva - epidemiological and virological investigation - what have we found & what have we done? #COVID19 #children #Switzerland medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
Main findings: 1) child-to-child & child-to-adult transmission 2) SARS-CoV-2 can spread rapidly between children & adults in schools 3) introduction into households 4) #SARSCoV2 sequencing showed cases belong to the same cluster 5) RDTs missed cases 5) undetected seroconversions
What did we do? We used child-friendly sampling as these were children 4-6 years: oropharyngeal swab for direct virus detection & sequencing, and capillary blood for serology thanks to a previously newly developed immunoassay with @MaerklLab @EPFL

Revealed: the spies who came in from the cold – how Vladimir #Putin’s alleged lover and an old family friend hid their fortunes in sunny #Monaco, with help from a British accountant. But was the money really theirs? My @guardian story from #PandoraPapers theguardian.com/news/2021/oct/…
In 2003 a mysterious offshore company, Brockville Development Ltd, bought a luxury €3.6m apartment overlooking Monaco’s marina. Its owner? Svetlana Krivonogikh, a 28-year-old #Russian woman who around the turn of the millennium became extremely rich #PandoraPapers
According to the #Russian investigative website Proekt, Krivonogikh was friends with Putin – and became his lover. Months before secretly buying the offshore Monaco property, Krivonogikh gave birth to a daughter Luiza Rozova. Putin is her Dad, Proekt alleges #PandoraPapers

It was decriminalised in South Korea (2021), Argentina (2020), Ireland (2019)

But other places - such as Poland & Texas - are swimming against the tide

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. bit.ly/2TT3R7O @OttoKolbl

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
.
.
.
.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

Der SVP geht es im Grunde ja auch nicht um Schafe, sondern vielmehr einfach nur darum, linksgrüne Wähler (oder Nicht-SVP-Wähler) allesamt als arrogant abzustempeln.

#svp #politik #Schweiz #Satire #satirefun
Es geht nicht darum Andere mit positiven und konstruktiven Vorhaben zugunsten des Schweizer Volkes zu überzeugen, sondern ihre gesamte einseitige Parteistrategie beruht auf der konstanten Benennung und Verleumdung handverlesener "schwarzer Schafe" oder "schwarzer Schafsherden".
Hierbei kann es sich um Nicht-SVP-Wähler, oder gerne auch um irgendwelche Minderheiten handeln, die wahlkampftechnisch zu Schuldigen für alles mögliche erklärt werden. Privat haben sie ja oftmals auch gar keine Probleme mit diesen Untergruppen.

Europe is the third-largest region for crypto, although it has a high degree of fragmentation.

We created this guide to map the current state of the European industry and help founders explore top players and regulations that may shape the future of crypto in the Union.
2/

Europeans believe cryptos are here to stay. And, there is a growing female user base.

A @Coinmarketcap report shows most of the new female entrants in 2020 came from European countries (58.55%), with Greece leading the trend, followed by Romania, Portugal, and Ukraine.
3/

3.34% of French residents are estimated to own cryptos, of whom 67% are significantly wealthy, highly educated, and young.

The country has an innovative regulatory framework and its capital hosts large events such as the @ethcc and @PWBSummit.

It's incredibly thrilling to have this paper out at last! 🎉

"Spread of a #SARSCoV2 variant through Europe in the summer of 2020"

(aka The Tale of Europe, Summer Travel, & EU1)

But why should we care about summer 2020 now? Let's take a look...

nature.com/articles/s4158…

1/24
Last Sept, while looking for #SARSCoV2 sequences that could help us understand transmission across #Switzerland, I noticed a cluster that was present not just across Switzerland, but also the UK & Spain. This is the cluster that eventually came to be known as 20E (EU1).

2/24
EU1 had a mutation at position 222 in spike - this caught my eye.

From mid-summer 2020, EU1 (orange) expanded across Europe - becoming the most prevalent variant in most of Western Europe, & accounting for >30% of sequences in Europe by the end of 2020.

In two weeks from now, the first #UEFA Euros match in #Baku will kick-off when #Wales meets #Switzerland.

The UK FCO currently warns of unexploded material, terrorists attacks to be "likely" and high COVID rates. I'd say all these risks are low, but there are other issues:
According to @ILGAEurope, #Azerbaijan is the most homophobic country in Europe. So better don't go, if you are part of the #LGBTQI community 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️
Sadly, #UEFA, as #FIFA, does not care much about safeguarding #LGBTQI fans...
Be aware that #Azerbaijan is one of the most restrictive countries in the world and certainly has the most restrictive regime in Europe. Vision #Belarus, just much worse, as all kind of international organisations report.

"Why did EU-Swiss negotiations on a Framework Agreement fail?"

New article, by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. @C_Baudenbacher, President of the EFTA Court between 2003 and 2017, an independent consultant and arbitrator
brusselsreport.eu/2021/05/27/why…
#InstA #EUSwiss #Switzerland @JHahnEU #efta
"After much agony, the seven-year long negotiations between the EU and Switzerland on the conclusion of a framework agreement have ended without result. In line with Brussels’ spin, public opinion tends to put the blame on the Swiss. But the matter is not that simple."
"In 1992, a narrow majority of the Swiss people and a clear majority of the cantons said no to Switzerland’s accession to the EEA Agreement. After that, the EU concluded two packages of bilateral agreements with Switzerland"
