マルタのジャーナリスト暗殺事件

 に、「国際商業信用銀行(BCCI)と似たようなな背景があるのではないか」と書きましたが、やはりそのようですね。 

国際商業信用銀行ならぬ、Pilatus Bank。

ジャーナリストが殺されたのは、口封じと見せしめ。
(Pilatus Bankの内部告発者に向けて、という面も。)

The Pilatus Bank saga-some facts and analysis
http://maltawinds.com/2017/05/13/pilatus-bank-saga-facts-analysis/ 

Pilatus Bank is undoubtedly on the mouths of everyone at the moment, what with almost surreal goings on in line with allegations of money laundering to the filing of cases in US courts. This news portal sought the opinion of a finance source who spoke on condition of anonymity, but who is privy to the dealings in the dark world of offshore finance. 

(中略)

 “At this moment, the worst allegation against this bank with its Azerbaijani clients is the hypothesis that it risks looking more and more like Malta’s own little BCCI.  Maybe they may wish to file an interesting detailed suspicious transaction report with the FBI while they are there. Instead of re-assuring us, Pilatus’s ferocious attempts to shut everybody up by threats and absurd proceedings in the US only help to reinforce this image of a bank which plays by its own rules and which feels it should be immune from scrutiny. It is not immune and hopefully more journalists will pursue, to the bitter end if need be, the true story behind this operation.  My opinion is that this massive draconian bluff intended to frighten people away until the elections are over, intended to ensure nothing more comes out. This is wrong on any count”, the source added. 

A number of questions inevitably arise out of all this saga. We need to find more about the apparently cozy relationships with certain stooges at the accommodating regulator’s office.

Is it true that among its valuable but few customers are persons occupying important posts in the governing party?

If instead the truth is quite different, then why is there this obscene conspiracy of silence and disturbing series of bullying warnings and threats even from the authorities?
