Keep the corrupt and their assets away from the Europe!
Over the past few years, many European countries started selling residence and citizenship rights through special residence- and citizenship-by-investments, so-called 'Golden Visa' programmes. We have been concerned about the corruption risks in the Golden Visa programs for quite a while now; however, new investigations from our partner OCCRP sheds the light to major vulnerabilities of these schemes. Our top three concerns are: (1) secrecy surrounding the programmes; (2) lack of rigorous due diligence; and (3) whether the people in these countries are better off. Join us in demanding that Golden Visas are no longer handed out to the corrupt.
Ends December 31, 2019
The European Commission is due to publish a report on the member states' Golden Visa schemes. The Commission must reflect the available evidence and critically weigh upon the corruption risks of these schemes!
