*Strasbourg/Press Club+International Kleber Library/Angelo Marcopolo/- At an event co-organized by Strasbourg's Press Club and International Kleber Library, University Professor Chantal Cutajar, (Experienced on Transborder Financial Crime, where she helped build a European Network funded by the EU: See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eusciencefundsimpact.html), presented Today a Legal Experts' Analysis on the still contentious Issue of so-called "Paradise Papers" Scandal, where Controversies are still going on Worldwide, and she resumed later (*) to "Eurofora" the main substance of that Topical Debate, where she was associated also with French Expert on Corporate Criminal Law, Philippe Marchessou, (a long-time "Eurofora"s aquaintance from Strasbourg's Faculty of Law) :

  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.

* EuroCorps, EU defence's etat major, which has just celebrated 15 years of age (1993 - 2008), is young enough to feel enthousiasm for missions to guarantee Human Rights, Peace and reconcilation : Strasbourg's Historic Symbols, but also maturing fast, (particularly under the current French EU Presidency), in order to prepare potentialy important developments in 2009 :

- "EUROCORPS" is a "unique tool" for "a Modern Europe", jointly managed by participating Nations without anyone deciding for others", to "support their efforts to promote Reconciliation, Peace and Human Rights' Values, which identify today's European ideal, with its Symbol-City : Strasbourg", stressed its Chief, Spanish General Pedro PITARCH, in a popular ceremony for the 15th Anniversary of the European Army Corps, at its Headquarters.

- "Today, we are ready and able to fullfil any Peace-keeping Mission may be decided by the Political leadership, since we can deploy up to 60.000 soldiers and/or other agents, mainly in land, but in coordination with Sea and Air operarions", (even to build vital Infrastructures, demining, keep public order, facilitate Elections, etc), said to EuroFora EUROCORPS' Spokesman and Press Director, Colonel Raul SUEVOS.

- "If there is an Agreement with the framework Nations, EUROCORPS could certainly contribute to guarantee manifold aspects of Peace setllements", told us recently General PITARCH.

EU Parliament asked, Summer 2008 in Strasbourg, " to place Eurocorps as a standing force under EU command", and "invited all (EU) Member States to contribute to it".

France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg (participating with Funds, Telecoms and Officers), are EUROCORPS"' main "Framework Nations", due to be joined by Italy in 2009. Greece and Austria participate as "Contributing Nations", while Poland decided to upgrade its role. Turkey has liaison Officers for NATO relations, and even USA decided to send Officers to Strasbourg on 2009.

Observers await with impatience also the outcome of NATO's April 2009 Summit in Strasbourg in order to have a better view of EuroCorps' future.
