   0   0 AllAfrica, Blog, Corruption

On the November 2014 Tax Justice Network Podcast:

You can lie and you can steal from us again but this time we’ll know who you are”: Ukraine becomes the first country in the world to introduce a public registry of the real owners of companies. The Taxcast speaks to the Director of Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Action Centre about stopping corruption that continues to cost lives.

Also:  we look at the fallout from the latest leaks from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists on corporate tax avoidance in
Luxembourg, or #LuxLeaks, Kenya considers ending corporate tax holidays, and why is the taxpayer-funded European Investment Bank lending money to companies which are heavy users of tax havens? All that and more scandal.

Featuring: The Tax Justice Network’s John Christensen and George Turner, Daria Kaleniuk of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre in Ukraine and a brief appearance from the disgraced former Ukrainian President Yanukovych.

Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
