Presidenten opprettet skatteparadis-selskap mens krigen raste – eller?

Presidenten opprettet skatteparadis-selskap mens krigen raste – eller?

 

Det var journalist Per Anders Johansen i Aftenposten som 5. april skrev om at «Mens krigen raste i Ukraina, sørget landets president for å opprette selskap på De britiske jomfruøyene for sin sjokoladeformue.»

Porosjenko er en av flere oligarker og fremtredende politikere fra Ukraina som dukker opp i en undersøkelse utført av International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, tyske Süddeutsche Zeitung  og en rekke medier over hele verden, deriblant Aftenposten.

Saken så ut til å være enda en avsløring etter at de såkalte Panama Papers-dokumentene ble offentliggjort.

Anatoliy Rodzynskyi, advokat og medlem av “Reforms against Corruption» skrev imidlertid allerede dagen før, 4. april, en artikkel som forklarte at påstandene mot Porosjenko bygger på forhastede konllusjoner.

The reporters in question either prepared their report too hurriedly or failed to involve experts who could have easily corrected the errors in their conclusions.
Anywhere in the world, a “blind trust” is considered to be an acceptable way of eliminating conflicts of interest between businesses and government.

The overzealous journalists discovered that documents of Prime Asset Partners Limited, created by Mr. Poroshenko, were provided to the Rothschild Group.  As a result the investigators have accused Mr. Poroshenko of not transferring Roshen into a blind trust, as well as not paying taxes in Ukraine.

Both statements are incorrect. Moreover, it would not have taken too much trouble for these journalists to have realized that.

Significantly, the person or organization to which the owner transfers control must have an unquestionably honest reputation, because this kind of reputation is the only assurance that the owner will not be mistreated.  That is the reason why Mr. Poroshenko chose the Rothschild Group to handle his blind trust.

Time will tell what Mr. Poroshenko will do, but for now he has completely fulfilled his promise to give up management of and influence over his business.
