Kofi Annan’s son surfaces in offshore accounts document dump

by FoxNews.com  |  published on April 5, 2016

The son of former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan surfaced in the global document dump that has some of the world’s most powerful players quaking, and it is the second time the diplomatic scion’s name has come up in an international finance scandal.

Kojo Annan’s is just one of several familiar names trickling out of the trove of 11.5 million documents leaked from Mossack Fonseca, the Panamanian law firm that helped some of the world’s richest people set up offshore bank accounts. Documents, leaked first to a German newspaper and then shared with a handful of international media outlets, reportedly show that Annan used a Mossack Foseca-arranged offshore account to buy a London apartment for more than $500,000 in 2003.

The exact price of the apartment was not immediately known, but its address is listed as “Argyll Mansions” in correspondence with Mossack Fonseca that continued into last year.

Annan’s business interests “operate in accordance with the laws and regulations of the relevant jurisdictions and, insofar tax liabilities arise, they pay taxes in the jurisdictions in which taxes are due to be paid,” a lawyer for Annan told Modern Ghana, the country where his father grew up and which has served as a base for the family. The younger Annan was born in Geneva.

    Not a surprise. Most of the power elite find “legal” ways to cheat and steal and get ahead. And without Christ in charge of their lives, there is no reason NOT to do everything possible, legal or illegal, to get ahead.

      A sad fact too many refuse to understand or accept, all to their eternal peril.

    It does not matter what Government or the U.N. is involved, the corruption never, and I mean, NEVER ENDS..!!!

      Unless the People Unify to bring it to an end.
      Information such as this can form the impitious for such Unity. But will take the People making sure that stories such as these stay visible. We know that the “protection” of the MSM Propaganda machine will cover every thing else, but this story. They always do.

    I hope two things right now.
    1. That these names will become publicly revealed for all to see and understand that there are those who corruptly use their positions to further themselves and supress People; and who the American names are on this list.
    2. That the People’s voices will not stop talking about this and demand that those who have enriched themselves are brought to justice.
    It just takes Unity of The People.

      And BO is seeking his next job with that organization, the lead position in the UN. More corruption and deceitful things done in the dark will be his contribution to that organization. Cannot wait to see what is revealed about his done in the dark dirty deeds not already uncovered when he leaves office. BO has been a prolific arrogant narcissistic sociopath in his office as president. I am sure there are some deeds done in the dark he hopes never come to light. He is not as smart as he thinks. It will all come into the light for all to see. Then he can be judged.

        The boy king is probably one of many who are equally corrupt and have made incredible fortunes from dipping into the People coffers. It is easy to focus on him because of the present circumstances and surmise on his ambitions.
        But, there are many more who have enriched themselves because of their positions in politics, they also have to be revealed so that there can finally be an understanding of the Corruption of Washington Decit and their masters of the Ruling Class Elitist.
        Criminality because of position of power and influence is what is destroying this Republic, PERIOD.

        That is the only true justice in life through the blood of Christ Jesus.
