corruption

Update: HURRAY! “The Spanish court denied for the second time the extradition request against Falciani, a French citizen who worked for HSBC, over alleged industrial sabotage in 2008 because the charges included in the Swiss ruling are not considered a crime in Spain.”  (src) THANKS! ALL INVOLVED!

Update: 2019-01: “Thanks to the courageous action of a single Swiss (Falciani) Spain has received 300 million euros back.

He risked his life to make up for an enormous injustice.

His Name is Hervé Falciani.” Carpe DIEM25!

2018-10: 90% of major European banks already sanctioned for money laundering

Update: sign the petition (in spanish)

Hervé Daniel Marcel Falciani (Italian: [falˈtʃaːni]; born 9 January 1972)

is a GOOD DAMN HERO!

He did the job that the Swizz, Spanish and other Governments were supposed to do – properly apply tax laws to EVERYONE not just the average employee and SME.

He worked as FrancoItalian systems engineer and whistleblower who is behind “the biggest banking leak in history.”[1]

In 2008, Falciani began collaborating with numerous European nations by providing allegedly illegal stolen information[2][3] relating to more than 130,000 suspected tax evaders with Swiss bank accounts – specifically those with accounts in HSBC’s Swiss subsidiary HSBC Private Bank.[4][5][6][7][8][9][full citation needed]

Falciani is the person behind the “Lagarde list“, so called as it is a list of HSBC clients who allegedly used the bank to evade taxes and launder money that Falciani leaked to ex-French Minister of Finance Christine Lagarde, currently the managing director of the International Monetary Fund.

Lagarde, in turn, sent the list to governments whose citizens were on the list.[10]

On 11 December 2014, Falciani was indicted in absentia by the Swiss federal government for violating the country’s bank secrecy laws and for industrial espionage.

The indictment accused Falciani of stealing information from HSBC’s Geneva offices and passing it on to tax authorities in France.

HSBC had been indicted in France for money laundering in November 2014.[11]

In November 2015, Switzerland’s federal court sentenced Falciani to five years in prison – the “longest sentence ever demanded by the confederation’s public ministry in a case of banking data theft”.

Falciani was accused of “aggravated financial espionage, data theft and violation of commercial and banking secrecy”.[12]

Have banks more power than governments? (see HSBC vs the US Government)

The Spanish government was willing to deliver Falciani to the Swiss government in exchange for other Katalan politics in exile, luckily the Swizz authorities turned down this deal.

US regulators have fined Deutsche Bank, Germany’s largest lender, $70 million for attempted manipulation of a global benchmark for interest-rate derivatives and other financial instruments, AFP reports. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said late on Thursday that the German bank’s subsidiary, Deutsche Bank Securities, “made false reports and through the acts of multiple traders attempted to manipulate the US Dollar International Swaps and Derivatives Association Fix.” The attempted manipulation took place between January 2007 and May 2012, the CFTC said, adding that traders “knew their conduct was illegal.”

… and who was CEO in this time at Deutsche Bank?

According to the Financial Times Deutschland Ackerman earned €9.4 million in 2009 and €8.8 million in 2010.[6] His included bonus in 2009 was €8.2 million and €7.1 million in 2010. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Group.[7]

what is also interesting to know… Goldman Sachs might have some influence at Deutsche Bank.

Morning Coffee: Goldman Sachs’ stealth takeover of Deutsche Bank could soon be complete. ‘Banker neck’ a recognized thing

… while Bank of America hired in plenty of ex-Goldman staff to its markets business …, it’s never actually been run by someone from Goldman Sachs (John Thain was ejected three weeks after the Merrill Lynch merger).
Deutsche may yet have this pleasure by the end of 2018.

in a world where madness is the new normal and upheld by the priests in order to profit from it – it is completely legitimate to go bonkers.

If you can stay “normal” under those crazy circumstances – i assure you – you are NOT normal and love to swallow lies.

While those kinds of pranks and public speaking are completely legitimate ways of expressing one’s opinion in a democracy – you clearly can feel how democratic concepts are colliding with interests of finance, money, power and control. (dictatorship)

it is good to know what you are against – but it is even better if you know what you are fighting for. (positive alternative)

According to Servin, the Yes Men concept initially sprang from their creation of a fake website spoofing the World Trade Organization. To the surprise of Servin and Vamos, many believed the site to be authentic, and the two were consequently contacted to speak at a conference in Austria. Since this time, the Yes Men have continued performing large-scale hoaxes, in what they describe as a collaborative effort with journalists to help the media tell stories which they believe are important.[3]

World peace is none of your business
You must not tamper with arrangements
Work hard and sweetly pay your taxes

And the poor must stay poor
Oh, you poor little fool oh, you fool

Each time you vote you support the process
Each time you vote you support the process

So many people in pain
No more, you poor little fool
No more, you fool
