You should see the Guardian coverage of it.

Putin all over it. Fifa and the icelandic Prime Minister and some Chinese Guy.

Be interesting to see how each country are covering it and who they are aiming at.

The Guardian coverage makes Cameron look like a saint.

Wouldn't suprise me if a lot of the people are false flags and people they want rid of.

A concurring opinion:

“International Consortium of Investigative Journalists”, which is funded and organised entirely by the USA’s Center for Public Integrity. Their funders include

Ford Foundation
Carnegie Endowment
Rockefeller Family Fund
W K Kellogg Foundation
Open Society Foundation (Soros)

If that's true then we are not far off.

Let's see who gets fingered in the West. The Icelandic Prime Minister called the bankers vultures and came up with that flawed Sovereign Money System proposal to reform the banks.

In the US it’s an IRS crime to have undeclared offshore holdings and earnings. Not so Canada, or a lot of other countries. So what’s the big deal? Or are we examining this AGAIN thru the US prism of “That’s Bad!”

I know small business owners who keep their dough offshore specifically to avoid (1) suits where the purpose is to empty fat bank accounts, and (2) make it jurisdictionally difficult to bring those lawsuits.
