Offshore wealth havens

offshore chartAn NGO called the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists published a report titled ‘Leaked Records Reveal Offshore Holdings of China’s Elite’ (also available in Chinese, titled ‘机密文件披露中国精英的海外资产’; both versions are blocked in China. The Guardian published a review of the report titled ‘China’s princelings storing riches in Caribbean offshore haven’.

The report was released on Wednesday, just a few hours before the trial of Xu Zhiyong 许志永, a legal activist whose recent causes include a push for officials to disclose their wealth.

Xinhua News agency remained silent on the above; the last mention of Xu Zhiyong in a public Xinhua report was in August 2013 when Xinhuanet.com republished a Global Times 环球时报 story: ‘环球时报评许志永被刑拘:陶醉于自己的”勇敢”‘.
