Greek Editor Is Arrested After Publishing a List of Swiss Bank Accounts

 

Alexandros Beltes/European Pressphoto Agency

 

Kostas Vaxevanis, center, publisher of the Greek magazine Hot Doc, exited the prosecutor's office in Athens on Sunday.

By LIZ ALDERMAN

 

Published: October 29, 2012

ATHENS - The Greek police arrested and then quickly released the owner and editor of a respected investigative magazine on Sunday morning hours after he published a list of more than 2,000 Greeks who were said to have accounts at a bank in Switzerland, throwing new controversy into a scandal over whether the government is actively pursuing suspected tax cheats.

 

The dramatic moves, which tens of thousands of Greeks were following on the Internet, came days before Greece's European partners were to meet to decide whether to grant tens of billions of euros in new aid to the financially struggling nation. Greece's lenders have long said that the government must crack down on tax evasion to be eligible for more aid.

 

The police said they had been ordered to take the editor, Kostas Vaxevanis, who runs Hot Doc magazine and who is one of the nation's most famous investigative journalists, into custody on misdemeanor charges. The Greek news media reported that the charges concerned the violation of the privacy of those on the list.

 

Mr. Vaxevanis posted a message to his Twitter account early Sunday saying that 15 officers had surrounded the home of a friend with whom he had been staying "like Greek storm troopers in German uniforms."

 

Mr. Vaxevanis soon followed up with another Twitter message: "They're entering my house with the prosecutor right now. They are arresting me. Spread the word."

 

Hours later, he was released from Athens police headquarters to loud cheers from a crowd outside. He is to face a magistrate at noon on Monday, when his trial date is to be set.

 

On the list were a former culture minister, several employees of the Finance Ministry and a number of business leaders. Hot Doc reported that they had accounts in a Geneva branch of HSBC. The magazine said its list matched a list of 2,059 people that was handed over to the Greek government in 2010 by Christine Lagarde, then the French finance minister and now the head of the International Monetary Fund, to help Greece crack down on rampant tax evasion as it was trying to steady its economy.

 

A spokesman for Ms. Lagarde referred questions to the French tax authorities, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

 

Last week, as the controversy grew, two former ministers were pressed to explain why the government appeared to have taken no action on the list in the two years since Ms. Lagarde handed it over.

 

George Papaconstantinou, the ex-finance minister who received the list from Ms. Lagarde, told a parliamentary panel last week that he had been advised that he could not use it because a former HSBC employee obtained the names illegally. Mr. Papaconstantinou said that after receiving the names, he had passed them on a memory stick to the chief of Greece's financial crimes unit, Ioannis Diotis, who later gave it to Mr. Papaconstantinou's successor, Evangelos Venizelos, the current leader of the Socialists. Mr. Diotis said that Mr. Venizelos had not instructed him to investigate it.

 

Mr. Vaxevanis's publication of the list raises the stakes in a heated battle over which current and former government officials had seen the original - and whether they had used it to check for possible tax evasion.

 

Moreover, Mr. Vaxevanis's arrest raises questions about freedom of the press in a country that frequently reminds its European Union partners that it is the birthplace of democracy. The Greek chapter of Reporters Without Borders issued a statement on Sunday expressing concern about the speed of his arrest.

 

Mr. Vaxevanis "is not a dangerous criminal," the group said. "The pressure created by the arrest of a reporter is clearly disproportionate. This procedure simply encourages an excessive cover-up, and the authorities appear to be imposing the 'therapy' of this sensitive issue, which is a gripping matter of public interest."

 

The group added that the handling of Mr. Vaxevanis's case "cannot be any different in a member state of the European Union."

 

Mr. Vaxevanis said he was the wrong target. "Instead of arresting the tax evaders and the ministers who had the list in their hands, they are trying to arrest the truth and free journalism," he said in a telephone interview that was uploaded on the Internet and widely circulated.

 

Greek blogs posted petitions calling for Mr. Vaxevanis's release, and they had generated more than 10,000 online signatures by early afternoon.

 

Greeks are skeptical that political leaders will investigate the business elite, with whom they often have close ties, even as middle- and lower-class people have struggled with higher taxes and increasingly ardent tax collectors. Parliament is expected to vote on a new 13.5 billion euro austerity package (about $17.5 billion) that could further reduce standards of living.

 

The fallout over the publication of the list is certain to distract Greek politicians, and may raise fresh questions among Greece's European partners during a week when European finance ministers are scheduled to discuss the release of a 31.5 billion euro loan tranche (about $41 billion) that Athens needs to avoid bankruptcy. The magazine was careful to note that having an account at HSBC was not illegal or proof of evading Greek taxes, a point underscored by a spokesman for the Finance Ministry. But the magazine suggested that Greek officials should check whether those on the list had moved money into the accounts to escape paying taxes.

 

The existence of the list has shaken the country, posing new challenges to the fragile three-way coalition government of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. There was no immediate comment from Mr. Samaras, who was meeting with aides to discuss the new austerity measures.

 

Rachel Donadio and Niki Kitsantonis contributed reporting.

Algorithms To Monitor Dengue

Using 1,500 Android phones, govt workers in the region tracked the location and timing of confirmed dengue cases and the mosquito larvae that carry the disease. Each case was tagged by time and location. If a certain neighborhood is suspected to be at the beginning of an outbreak, then government officials could search out mosquito-larvae reservoirs such as pools of water that are likely causing the problem.

Last year, Lahore was hit with the worst outbreak of dengue fever in its history. The mosquito-transmitted disease infected some 16,000 people and took 352 lives. This year was a completely different story. There were only 234 confirmed cases and no deaths.

Govt Run By Corporates?

In his clash with India’s petrochemical giant, Reddy stood by his view that RIL was hoarding gas by slowing production in its offshore fields in the Krishna-Godavari basin. This, the oil ministry felt, caused a loss of Rs 40,000 crore to companies in the current year while it was Rs 20,000 crore last year. The Reliance-led consortium has said the problems are related to geological complexities. But  Reddy had asked arbitrators to look at the matter as he did not want to get into the geological reason of slowing down of gas production and hence resisted the increase in gas price to increase production.

Prima facie the shift implies  that corporate lobbies work in India and can bend the government to their interests. Even former Infosys director Mohandas Pai agrees Reddy’s ouster was a “big negative”.

As Mr. Ambani pressed his case on Raisina Hill, the demand to revise gas prices upwards even before the April 2014 deadline soon started coming from other Ministers and also the PMO. RIL was also upset at being forced to agree to an audit of the KG D6 gas field by the CAG.

Dear Aswathi,

It has come to knowledge of IAC HQ that you have recently contacted many media persons to misrepresent that Arvind's email of 22.10.12 (08:12 am) is fake/not sent by Arvind. Many reporters have been provided access to Arvind's email and are agreed that the statement published by IAC HQ the same day at 11:15 am is a copy-paste except for the reply to Question No. 9 to which a simple 1 line answer was given by IAC HQ. A senior journalist Ms. Sucheta Dalal has objected that the reply was "sketchy" overall and the last line was clearly interpolated by us.

It is regrettable that Arvind is compelled by his political compulsions to swing like a pendulum depending on which way the wind is blowing. Such antics do no good to the IAC movement and cause citizens to doubt our motives and also question IAC's commitment to disclosure and transparency when it comes to our own affairs.
As our volunteers all over India, especially those in the rural area and small towns - not only those in affluent Delhi or Mumbai belts, have to be properly informed at all times, kindly arrange that sufficiently well researched and in-depth answers on behalf of IAC(Gzb.) to Mr. Digvijaya Singh's questions, concerning Arvind's private NGOs, their financing and scope in IAC movement, contained at pg. 2 of DVS's first letter to Arvind (also appended here)are emailed to us within 24 hours so that IAC HQ can issue the appropriate guidance memo for our sewaks.

Kindly also reply to the additional last query below posed by our 2 active workers from Dist.Solan (Himachal Pradesh), who are awaiting our urgent guidance.

If nothing is heard within 24 hours, IAC HQ shall be issuing a statement unilaterally after 36 hours to protect the image of the entire IAC movement.

The first part of the game is make a parallel IAC to confuse the Public. Even I was taken for a ride by Ajay till I got an email from Preeti.

This email ID is genuine, because you can confirm from link https://lists.riseup.net/www/arc/indiaagainstcorruption/2012-10/msg00110.html that your message has been circulated to IAC mailing list database.

Without getting into which email ID is genuine and which is "fake", IAC HQ only says that everyone should jointly promote IAC movement as per IAC ORIGINAL code of conduct and which IAC(Kejriwal faction) has removed from their website.

my niticentral piece on why gandhinam style blows away gangam style: http://bit.ly/ScnfUL

White Guys Hounded Out Vikram Pandit

Once he became chairman this year, Mr. O’Neill, 66, meticulously built a case for the chief executive’s ouster, first meeting privately with less-satisfied board members and then drawing in others until Mr. Pandit had virtually no allies left.

Senior Citi executives feel that the action was needlessly ruthless. They point out that Mr. Pandit successfully steered the once moribund bank through one of its most turbulent chapters, repaid roughly $45 billion in federal lifelines, rebuilt capital and began to focus the sprawling institution.
NYT: Citi Chairman Is Said to Have Planned Chief’s Exit Over Months

smkrishna resigns (good riddance), presumably to make way for rahul to be foreign minister. oh frabjous day!

but whatever will poor hina rabbani khar do, now that her principal admirer (other than bilawal bhutto) is out of power?

india's foreign affairs are in tatters. for once, can we put someone in there who knows what they are doing? of course not, it will be some tired congress hack who gets the call if it is not rahul himself.

Dear Aswathi,

It has come to knowledge of IAC HQ that you have recently contacted many media persons to misrepresent that Arvind's email of 22.10.12 (08:12 am) is fake/not sent by Arvind. Many reporters have been provided access to Arvind's email and are agreed that the statement published by IAC HQ the same day at 11:15 am is a copy-paste except for the reply to Question No. 9 to which a simple 1 line answer was given by IAC HQ. A senior journalist Ms. Sucheta Dalal has objected that the reply was "sketchy" overall and the last line was clearly interpolated by us.

It is regrettable that Arvind is compelled by his political compulsions to swing like a pendulum depending on which way the wind is blowing. Such antics do no good to the IAC movement and cause citizens to doubt our motives and also question IAC's commitment to disclosure and transparency when it comes to our own affairs.

As our volunteers all over India, especially those in the rural area and small towns - not only those in affluent Delhi or Mumbai belts, have to be properly informed at all times, kindly arrange that sufficiently well researched and in-depth answers on behalf of IAC(Gzb.) to Mr. Digvijaya Singh's questions, concerning Arvind's private NGOs, their financing and scope in IAC movement, contained at pg. 2 of DVS's first letter to Arvind (also appended here)are emailed to us within 24 hours so that IAC HQ can issue the appropriate guidance memo for our sewaks.

Kindly also reply to the additional last query below posed by our 2 active workers from Dist.Solan (Himachal Pradesh), who are awaiting our urgent guidance.

If nothing is heard within 24 hours, IAC HQ shall be issuing a statement unilaterally after 36 hours to protect the image of the entire IAC movement.

my niticentral piece on why britain is cozying up to #namo: self-interest http://bit.ly/RZlKX0

the 'nation of shop-keepers' is always sniffing around for somebody new to sell their wares to.

also, maybe NATO is getting a little concerned about the longevity of their pet dynasty, now that sonia is sick, rahul is a dud, and priyanka's husband is revealed as india's zardari (mr. 30%?).

(belated) Happy birthday, world!

i think it was also more precise: 9 am on oct 23, 4004 BCE. do look up the hilarity on (primate) ussher's wikipedia site. (oh, i see now he said it was nightfall the previous day. wait, how can there be night if the world, and most particularly the sun, hadn't been created yet? oh well, suspension of disbelief is required in these cases.)

question: if the world is only 6000 years old, how come some fossils are millions of years old?

answer from semitic fundamentalist: yhwh decided to play a prank on us, so he made the fossils LOOK millions of years old although he made them on 4004 BCE, oct 23, at 10 am. yhwh is god, so he can do it. who said yhwh does not have a sense of humor?

Can the Dragon defeat Tibetan Buddhism?
Vijaya Rajiva
25 October 2012
 
The answer to that question is no, simply because of the many Buddhisms that grew up in Asia, Tibetan Buddhism as a genre is the closest to Hinduism and like Hinduism has had a long civilisational history and will continue to have it. Much has been written about the historical/ political/ legal aspects of the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1949 and the interested reader will find the following bibliography useful. [1].
 
The writer will focus on the question of Tibetan Buddhism (READ MORE)
