CAPITAL FLIGHT CONVENTION: PREVENTION AND SANCTION

Recent special investigations and leaks referred to as “The Panama Papers” have revealed the indisputable criminal behavior of those who open accounts and store profits in so-called “tax havens,” as well as have exposed those governments and financial entities that facilitate and accept such transfers and deposits. With the conviction that there is a need to limit inequalities pervading the people’s social reality, CAF provides these governments and social organizations with a draft international convention, discussed and developed over the course of its 2016 annual meeting.
