Off-shore "paradise" islands are back in the news and as far as I am concerned they should stay in the news until these shelters for the super-rich, tax evaders and also mega-criminals are sorted out.
On the wish list from the civil society you will among other things find contract transparency, a digital searchable register for stockholder list and extended country-by-country reporting.

- If you want an untraceable shell company, where is the best place to buy it?
- How sensitive are those who sell shell companies to corruption risks?
