  Cutajar is also Director of the European College for Financial Investigations and Financial Analysis of Crimes (see: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eucommissionerredingoneuprosecutorandtraining.html), as well as Head of GRASCO (the Group for Research and Action on Organized Crime), and her Research extends at a Wide area, including, f.ex., also "Cyber-Crime" via Internet, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/cyberattaksandeurules.html), etc.

 

----------------------


 -  Here, "the Problem is that some have Claimed that the <<Paradise Papers'>> Set up might be Legal", she told "Eurofora" from the outset.


 - "So, we organized a Discussion about that, with Experts on Corporate Law and Fiscal Law, where it was demonstrated that, in fact, all that, cannot be really legal"...


 - In particular, "since that is used in order to Avoid Fiscal Obligations, it canNot be Legal", she stressed.


 - "Such cases concern Both Individual Persons and Corporations".
 - Especially "when they use all possibilities of Corporate and Fiscal Law in order to Avoid Taxes", Cutajar pointed out.


 - F.ex., "it was demonstrated that this was used even by the Queen of England, or Hamilton who bought his Airplane withOut paying Added Value Tax, a Corporation which created a Subsidiary Company in order to Corrupt for obtaining Procurements, etc"...


 - A Key point in that is the "use of Off-Shore Companies" : F.ex., "in Organized Crime cases, Money Laundering is done via Off-Shore Companies, and in Tax Fraud, the Tool is Off-Shore Companies".

 - That's why, "for me, My Struggle is for Transparency of Corporations. Because, as long as there is No Corporate Transparency, it will always be possible to do things in Secret", by abusing of procedures, "through a System of Intermediaries", etc., she Warned.


 - In Fact, all those who take Benefit from such shady moves, Bear at least a Responsibility for Faulty Negligence, if not for doing that on Purpose". Because "a Lawyer must Always Question the Aim of an Operation", Professor Cutajar underlined in Conclusion.

In a last-minute, surprise move, New EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, anounced a proposal in Strasbourg to open an EU Parliament debate on Europe's Identity in the ranup to 2009 Election :

    - "I am conscious of the fact that there is, today, a real Crisis on Europe's
Identity", he replied earlier to a question by Greek MEP Ioanis Varvitsiotes, who had asked him to "advance beyond those who don't really want a Political Europe",

    - "Why not a real Debate on what is Europe's Identity ?", proposed
Sarkozy, in this regard.

    -  "EU Parliament could organize such Debates", he suggested :"It's
better for EU Parliament, than for National Governments, or EU Commission, to
define what is the European Identity", the French President proposed.

    A diplomatic way to avoid obstacles by some Governments and/or some Brussels' bureacrats, reportedly opposed to really free and popular, critical European debates on hot political issues..

    Sarkozy brillantly won the 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in France in 2007, in the line of the principles anounced at an important Speech in Strasbourg, February 2007, about a Political Europe, and a European Identity on issues which matter to the People.

   

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
