The Truth Will Out: Time Is Up For The Tax Justice Network

Whilst we can only surmise as to the precise reasons why founder and chairman, John Christensen and his high tax-campaigning colleague, Richard Murphy, have parted company with the Tax Justice Network (TJN), the disintegration of the organisation was simply a matter of time. Ironically, and much as predicted by informed observers, the introduction of transparency legislation consequent upon the 1998 OECD initiative on all crimes, anti-money laundering, and tax matters in the Cayman Islands and other Overseas Territories rendered the TJN anti “tax haven” narrative unsustainable. Many have been astonished that Christensen and Murphy had maintained their positions for quite so long.
