The April TaxCast from the Tax Justice Network

Posted on

In the April 2016 Taxcast: in this month’s extended podcast we discuss the biggest offshore leak in history, the #PanamaPapers.  Could it provide an opportunity for nations to expand their secrecy market share? Once again, all eyes are on Trusts.

Also, as the #LuxLeaks whistleblower Antoine Deltour‘s trial begins in Luxembourg, we ask why protections for whistleblowers are being eroded and what it says about the state of our democracy. Presented and produced for the Tax Justice Network by Naomi Fowler.

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, Member of the European Parliament Fabio De Masi, Antonio Gambini of CNCD 11.11.11, co-founder of Luxembourg’s home grown tax justice collective Collectif Tax Justice Lëtzebuerg Luc Dockendorf and a brief appearance by EU Commission President and former PM of Luxembourg Jean-Claude Juncker.
