Dazzle Posted October 3, 2021 Share Posted October 3, 2021 https://www.cbc.ca/news/pandora-papers-offshore-tax-avoidance-1.6197303 Some current PMs/leaders listed here: the Kenyan and Czech PMs, and King Abdullah II of Jordan. All corrupt people. This is what the Kenyan PM said, according to the article. "Every public servant's assets must be declared publicly so that people can question and ask — what is legitimate?" Kenyatta had told a BBC interviewer in 2018. The leaked records show he and his mother were beneficiaries of a secretive foundation in Panama, while other family members own five offshore companies with assets worth more than $38 million. Kenyatta and his family did not reply to ICIJ partner journalists' requests for comment. (Journalist's note: He himself, however, seems to have been an exception.) Also, Shakira is listed here. I think these leaks are politically motivated though. To me, there's probably a lot of rich Americans that are dodging taxes, but for some reason isn't listed here or in other papers. We all pretty much know how corrupt Trump really is, so there are different kinds of corruption. Seems to me that this story was meant to divert attention to other people, instead of something else. Nonetheless, this leak is still important to get rid of rich people who got rich from their own people (and in some cases, foreign aid) 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
