GFI in the Press Today

July 31st, 2009

Task Force member Global Financial Integrity made a couple of press appearances today.  GFI Director Raymond Baker appeared in an Associated Press (AP) article discussing the UBS case, and GFI Mananging Director Tom Cardamone discussed the case on Canada’s Business News Network (BNN).

From the AP article:

Raymond Baker, director of the Global Financial Integrity, an organization that works to end illegal international money transfers, said it’s critical that U.S. officials push for greater information sharing so tax evasion and other financial crimes can be investigated.

“What happens with the UBS case will be noted around the world, but what will set a true precedent for tax havens around the world is what we do next,” Baker said.
