The British government has ordered disclosure of offshore owners by 2020

on Wed May 02, 2018 9:12 am
The British government has ordered its overseas territories, including the Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands, to make information about the company's owners public.

This was reported by Reuters.

The decision was made in response to the desire of a group of British government officials to step up the fight against tax evasion and money laundering.

"This is the news that we all waited for. This is a major step towards combating tax evasion and corruption, which is costing developing countries, is very expensive, "said Simon Kirkland, a member of the campaign to combat money laundering in Christian Aid.

At the same time, the overseas offshore companies in Britain are not so enthusiastic about such innovations.

"This not only undermines confidence, but also casts doubt on our relations with the United Kingdom and the constitutional rights of our citizens," said the British Virgin Islands Prime Minister.

According to British parliamentarians, a significant role in the adoption of this decision was played by the Russian special services of the former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal.

Previously, it was reported that Russian oligarchs kept about $47 billion in British offshore.

Let's remind that in the United States sanctions against Russian oligarchs approaching Russian President Vladimir Putin in the case of Moscow's interference in the presidential election of 2016 have been imposed.

After new US sanctions in Russia, the dollar for the first time since November 2017 exceeded 60 rubles.

On the night of April 14, the United States, Great Britain and France struck Syria. Trump called the US and Syrian allies a "perfect mission."

Attacks on the United States, Great Britain and France in Syria have been supported by NATO. Ukraine also supported the strikes by the United States, Britain and France over Syria.

The Russian Foreign Ministry reacted to attacks on Khimobjects in Syria. Russia convened an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council due to blows to Syria, but the UN Security Council rejected a draft resolution on Russia's air strikes in Syria.

In response to a strike on Syria, Russia said it was preparing a cyber attack against Britain.

On April 15, the United States said they were preparing to re- impose sanctions on Russia in connection with a chemical attack in Syria.
