Malta scandal exposes New Zealand trusts again

Neil Chenoweth and Susan Edmunds

April 28 2017

http://i.stuff.co.nz/…/malta-scandal-exposes-new-zealand-tr…

“A Malta magistrate is investigating explosive claims of money laundering and corruption that have put New Zealand in the middle of a global cash trail from the family of Azerbaijan president Ilham Aliyev.

President Aliyev’s daughter, Leyla Aliyeva, is alleged to have channelled more than NZ$1.6 million to senior figures of the Malta government, including Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s wife.

These include alleged payments to Panama companies owned by New Zealand trusts set up by the Malta Energy Minister Karl Mizzi and Muscat’s chief of staff, Keith Schembri.

On April 20, Maltese blogger Daphne Caruana-Galizia reported that she held copies of documents originally stored in a kitchen at Pilatus Bank, which showed that Egrant Inc, a mystery Panama Papers company identified by the Financial Review last year, was secretly owned by the Maltese Prime Minister’s wife, Michelle Muscat.

In March 2016, a Dubai company controlled by Leyla Aliyeva had transferred US$1.017 million (NZ$1.47 million) marked as a loan into Egrant’s account at Pilatus Bank, Caruana-Galizia reported.

Joseph Muscat denied the claims, calling it the “biggest political lie in Malta’s history”.

Caruana-Galizia reported that other payments were made from Leyla Aliyeva’s company to Pilatus accounts held by Egrant as well as Tillgate Inc and Hearnville Inc, two Panama companies that are owned by Schembri and Mizzi, through New Zealand trusts.

Schembri and Mizzi vehemently deny Caruana-Galizia’s reports. Mizzi has produced audited accounts for his New Zealand trust which shows it as dormant with no assets or income.
…..

The latest revelations, if substantiated, are an embarrassment for the New Zealand government, which announced an inquiry into its offshore trust laws on April 11 last year, the day after the Financial Review revealed details of how Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca’s Malta agent, BT Nexia, began setting up Tillson, Hearnville and Egrant five days after Muscat’s election victory in 2013.

Mossack Fonseca’s files were obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.

New Zealand subsequently amended its offshore trusts regime, requiring foreign trusts to file annual accounts with the New Zealand tax office, but with no further restrictions.

At that time, it appeared the Malta trusts had never been used, after Mizzi and Schembri’s Panama companies were turned down by eight banks who refused to open accounts for them because they were Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).

The Panama Papers, however, show repeated cases of overseas investors filing false or implausible sets of accounts with New Zealand lawyers, who have limited means to verify the figures.

SIGNIFICANT ROLE

The latest wave of allegations in Malta underline how easily the New Zealand disclosure laws can be avoided, which the new laws do not change.

If the reports are substantiated, they raise a far more serious picture of money-laundering from one of the most corrupt countries in the world, in which New Zealand’s foreign trusts played a significant role.

The saga began in February 2016 when Caruana-Galizia revealed that Schembri and Mizzi had set up two Panama companies, Tillgate Inc and Hearnville Inc, owned by the Haast Trust and Rotorua Trust in New Zealand.

In April 2016, the Financial Review published new details of Schembri and Mizzi’s New Zealand trusts and their attempts to open a bank account in Dubai.

Two days after Daphne Caruana Galizia was murdered by this car bomb, it was announced that former NZ Prime Minister John Key would become Chair of the Board of the ANZ bank.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm…

“Sir John Key has been named chairman of ANZ Bank’s local arm.
Key joins the board of the country’s biggest bank from today and will assume chair at the start of next year.”

The ANZ bank was the Australian bank mentioned more times than any other bank in the Panama Papers.

(4/4/2016)

“By Neil Chenoweth
Financial Review

The Mossack Fonseca files show the critical importance that banks hold in the offshore world – and ANZ is the most visible of the Australian banks in the offshore space.

ANZ appears in 7548 of the Mossack documents, reflecting the bank’s extensive work in New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Samoa and Jersey.
…”

On 1 August 2017, at a meeting attended by 200 people at Rutherford House, Victoria University, Wellington New Zealand, the (former) Chair of Transparency International, Jose Ugaz stated that John Key should be investigated over the Panama Papers.

I attended this meeting and heard Jose Ugaz say this myself, as did the other 200 people in the room.

There appears to have been NO NZ mainstream media coverage of this story.

Can the ICIJ please carry out an investigation of former NZ Prime Minister John Key and the Panama Papers?

Yours sincerely,

Penny Bright

Aussie land grab by Rabobank – this is Agenda 21/30 aka ‘Sustainable Development’ in full flight – learn about this UN plan to inventory & control literally everything – be warned

“…Agenda 21 is a UN  action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world”  Rosa Koire

Here is an example of UN Agenda 21 and ‘sustainable development’ in action (now known as Agenda 2030 as time moves on). On the surface it looks legitimate … however as Rosa Koire points out (see her video, link further down) it is a covert plan to inventory and control everything you hold dear including yourself & your freedoms. Before you conveniently write this off as ‘conspiracy’, research it for yourself.

As this plan works out in this example (and there are many others like them) the cabal with their banking cohorts engage people with unrepayable predatory loans engineered with a mix of raised interest rates & other manipulative tactics until deep in debt they are driven off their land. While all due respect & sympathy goes out to these unsuspecting farmers (because they didn’t fully realize who and what they were up against with the banking system and their predatory loans) this is the treatment indigenous people, and particularly Australian indigenous, have endured for centuries. Content to live on the land, not rape and pillage it as do the corporations, and with great respect take from it only what they needed, they were trammeled underfoot in the name of ‘progress’ (aka greed of the few). The point is, the same greed for land by those who sought it in colonial days, goes on today & here it is in full flight (and I’m not referring to the average colonial folk back then who simply wanted to survive, oft times driven from their own lands by the same greed witness Scotland and Ireland). Read Who Owns the World? by Kevin Cahill (his lectures are also on Youtube) for an exposé on the deception we’ve been fed about that.

Our respective countries’ governments are corporations (NZ), our local governments are corporations/companies also and democracy is rapidly becoming an illusion witness the battles folk are having with their District Councils and rates wars. (See all our Local Govt Watch pages at the main menu). Companies exist for profits not people and are fast becoming the means of the new world order (talked about frequently now) to acquire ownership of the entire planet … ownership and control is the real agenda. Check out our Agenda 21 pages for more information on that and hear from others who have endured the same as these people here … from those who have seen this outworking in the paperwork of their respective businesses and professions like a US woman Rosa Koire did. See also our Banking pages. There’s an agenda going down that is covert but becoming more overt by the day. These bully boys have always employed the military & the long arm of the law to achieve what they could not by ‘friendliness’ and deception (see Dr Hirini Moko Mead on the *three phases of colonization). Witness the various land wars in the colonized countries, in our own (NZ), a means of acquiring land from non-sellers. Government legislated War &/or confiscation was the modus operandi. People need to wake up what is going down right under their noses. There is a new wave of land grabbing in progress right now.
For further information on this issue in Australia see this Youtube channel. And to read about the NZ man from whose bank account the ANZ took $5400 to pay his rates go here. (He withheld payment for good reason, read the full story here). See also our Corporations pages.

*Landmarks, Visions and Bridges by Dr Hirini Moko Mead


Published on Feb 22, 2017

Netherlands-based bank Rabobank with the aid of an armada of government-paid enforcers arriving in government vehicles along with grubby receivers Ferrier Hodgson heavied Noeline Bradshaw and her son Neil to get off their cattle property, Ballabay north of Pentland. Noelene and Neil were arrested by several violent officers and marched off to the paddy wagon. Although the receivers and Rabobank representatives indicated they would go to the negotiating table after a court appearance on Thursday, in order to avoid a welcoming party at the property they did not arrive on Monday February 20 as they had indicated. Instead they arrived in military style on Wednesday, with enforcers blocking the entry road and threatening any media or supporters with arrest if they tried to enter. Ferrier Hodgson were supposed to remove the family on “voluntary terms” as they had suggested. It appears they did not wish to have any other parties present when removing the entire family. Neil Bradshaw owns cattle on the property that are not mortgaged to Rabobank. He previously circulated descriptions and brands of his cattle to all livestock agents and meatworks warning them not to deal with the cattle.
This sorry saga of a foreign bank dispossessing honest, hard-working Australians from their properties is completely sanctioned by the LNP and Labor Party. Bank industry sources believe Rabobank is acting in league with coal and gas companies to remove land holders in order to easily access known coal and gas reserves in the Pentland district.

“Rabobank will have token buyers lined up ready to buy the properties at discounted prices, leaving the Bradshaws holding the bag with a $1 million or more deficit, which without any means of income they will never be able to pay off,” the source said.

Yesterday Member for Kennedy Bob Katter weighed into this disgraceful episode, contacting the Labor Polce Minister(whose husband is a police inspector) then arriving at the Charters Towers police station to get the Bradshaws out of the watch house.
He was told the Bradshaws had been released just before he arrived. The clearly upset Bob Katter told Cairns News that the lending practices of the banks are designed to allow foreclosures.
“In this case the bank loaned the family too much money because of droughts and poor cattle prices then the government-instigated live cattle export ban which placed them in an unviable position,” he said. “The banks are a law unto themselves and there is no power on earth to control them. “I have got hundreds of similar cases on file where farmers have not been able to get any relief from any of the so-called government watchdogs like ACCC, courts, the Reserve Bank ASIC and others that are supposed to offer financially stressed businesses relief. “Banks like Rabobank continue to flagrantly break the law. “The Bradshaws are devastated after a lifetime’s work to lose their possessions to a foreign bank or any bank. “The bank will make a profit of half a million or more from these seizures and the Bradshaws will have to carry a $1 million or more debt for the rest of their lives. “This assault on an Australian farming family clearly demonstrates the urgent need for a Royal Commission into banking practices.”

KiwiSavers invest in cluster bomb, land mine manufacturers

The subject of Kiwisaver has certainly raised a lot of questions lately with regard to the investment of funds by our corporation. Likewise have been the questions around our PM’s ongoing alliance with the US war machine. Check this one out!

Hundreds of thousands of KiwiSaver members in government-appointed default schemes may be unknowingly investing in companies making cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines.

At least five of the nine default KiwiSaver providers invested in these types of companies, despite them being banned by government agencies such as the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and ACC.

The Green Party and Amnesty International say the government must review default providers that have investments in these weapons.

People who sign up to KiwiSaver but do not pick a scheme to enrol in are automatically allocated to one of nine providers hand-picked by the government.

These default providers are ANZ, Westpac, ASB, BNZ, Kiwibank, AMP, Mercer, Grosvenor and Fisher Funds.

More than 500,000 people are enrolled in default schemes, according to figures supplied by Inland Revenue.

An investigation by RNZ has found the default funds run by ANZ, Westpac, ASB, AMP and Grosvenor invested in the anti-personnel mine manufacturer Northrop Grumman and nuclear weapon or base operators Fluor Corp, Honeywell International and Lockheed Martin.

Westpac, ASB, BNZ, Grosvenor and AMP also invested in cluster bomb manufacturers General Dynamics and Textron.

The New Zealand Superannuation Fund and ACC are not allowed to invest in any of these companies because of the government’s obligations under international conventions banning the use of these weapons and investment in the companies that make them.

Warning: New Zealand Government And Big Banks In Collusion For Farm Land Grab: The Same Scam As Run In The United States And Australia

March 11 2016 | From: WakeUpKiwi / Various

We are about to see the mass sell off of NZ farms. And 95% of them will go to foreigners under the TPPA- timed to perfection of course. You are now watching the United Nations Agenda 21 / Agenda 2030 bei…. Wake up. Share this information.

What you have seen happen in Auckland in the past 15-20 years was just the start- a test bed. The evidence here is irrefutable.

Related: Fonterra Drops Forecast Milk Payout

Possibly the most painful part of this will be watching all of the big bank / corporate sponsored ‘experts’ in the filthy corrupt media & Government try and explain it all away in terms of “interest rates” and “market forces”. Farmers are enticed into taking out loans at low interest rates which are then intentionally later raised, in a blatantly criminal plan to seize land. It worked in the US. Copy and paste in Australia. And now copy and paste in New Zealand.

New Zealand company Fonterra is the worlds largest dairy exporter, exporting products to over 100 countries

The truth is, it is an agenda planned even before the inception of Fonterra, specifically for this end goal – the ‘Globalization’ of our land and all of our natural resources – using rigged (Libor) interest rates, market manipulations, fake printed debt and various other financial frauds.

Man Has $5400 Stolen By ANZ Bank To Pay Unlawful Council Rates!

“Mangawhai ratepayers and residents face massive rates rates increases, initially proposed at +1800% to raise money for a “sewerage scheme” it turns out that something much more sinister and far smellier is in the works.
No democracy, no accountability, no rights and no access to justice, worst case scenario right? Well how about the disputed rates payments that are before the high court being stolen directly from citizens bank accounts?
So much stolen that you can’t even make your next mortgage payement?
This might be one of the most important cases in recent New Zealand local government and yet the media are completely ignoring it and leaving those in this community to fight for themselves.
Luckily, people like Alan Preston and chairman of The Mangawhai Residents And Ratepayers Association Bruce Rogan are there to give light to this very important issue!”
