Interview with an investigator of white collar crimes / Perry Case

Some of the cases mentioned here, can be found in great detail on this website:;art173,374984

That in turn does not surprise. The cases have more and more implications for other jurisdictions, from Switzerland over the UK to Panama.

Dear readers,

starting with the next blogpost, will be also available in English language under

Please do not hesitate and send us (completely anonymous by using our PGP-based whistleblower-tool) further material regarding international cases involving black sheep. we will use the material carefully.

Thank you very much.
