ASTOUNDING Wirecard story from @samgadjones, Paul Murphy and @helenwarrell It was early 2018 when Jan Marsalek held a meeting in his palatial home in Munich to talk about a new project he was interested in: arming and training 15,000 Libyan militiamen. https://t.co/EXZq3wYiSS

OK, here's an unpaywalled version from Der Standard: https://t.co/KaAVmQd0mZ #Marsalek was the source feeding information from the Austrian intelligence service to extreme-right, pro-Russian politicians at the time they decided to have the police raid it https://t.co/vRStRdH5cW

there's a degree of scandal convergence here. FPO chief whip Johann Gudenus's phone - the phone on which he received #Marsalek's tips - has been seized in another unrelated inquiry, giving rise to further revelations on the BVT raid: https://t.co/WnMah4yDx1

Oldenburgische Landesbank was a sleepy regional lender known as “Grandma’s favourite bank”. Then Leon Black’s Apollo took over. Great tale from @OlafStorbeck on the tiny German bank that bet big on Wirecard’s Markus Braun https://t.co/T7D3Qd4N2e

The Savoy Hotel has paid no corporate tax in the UK for 15 years. It is not the only one. The Financial Times asks: is the system broken and is coronavirus an opportunity to stop corporate tax avoidance for good? By @EmmaAgyemang @alexebarker and me https://t.co/IcP1LCWZCR

A simple and effective tax reform would be to end deductibility of interest for any related party debt, with a broad definition of related party - i.e. any entity from the same private equity umbrella organisation. https://t.co/fM8W1J0Is7
