The Champion Countries of Financial Secrecy L'Humanité (In French)
From India's Frontline magazine, a short excerpt of an interview with Swiss whistleblower Rudolf Elmer:
We are delighted to report the launch of TJN-Israel next Wednesday. The invitation, only in Hebrew, is available here.
The launch will take place with a conference at the College of Law and Business, Ramat-Gan, at 5pm on Wednesday, November 20th, where TJN's Director John Christensen will give the keynote speech.
The conference will include a speech by the deputy head of the tax authority about recent plans to combat illicit capital flows in Israel. It will also include a discussion on a country-by-country reporting bill that the founders of TJN Israel submitted three months ago, with the help of the head of the left party in Israel.
On Thursday there will be a roundtable discussion from 9.30 - 12.00 am, also at the College of Law and Business, looking at TJN's recently launched Financial Secrecy Index. Markus Meinzer, the lead researcher on our index, will be accompanied by John Christensen.
