Geldwäsche, korrupte EU Politiker, haben sich mit 2,5 Milliarden Euro von der Aserbeischan Mafia bestechen lassen und die TAP Gas Pipeline

Der komplette EU Laden, ist ein krimineller Haufen der vollkommen korrupt ist, wie man an der aufgeblaehten EU Botschaft in Tirana sieht, wo sich dumm mit vollkommen korrupt eine Art Club gebildet haben. Fuer den Justiz Aufbau, entsendet man mit System “ Idioten“.

Praktisch einziger Wirtschafts Motor in Albanien: Man hat das System im Stile von Georg Soros uebernommen und Hillary Clinton, das die Saudis, Katar, oder Aserbeidschan fuer Geld Alles auch gefaelschte Berichte der EU, OSCE kaufen kann. Ob diese Pipeline je in Betrieb geht, sollte man besser nicht glauben, aber mit 5 Milliarden Eurodirekt von der EU Mafia gesponsert, wo der angebliche Justiz Aufbau ein Betrugs Projekt der EU seit 25 Jahren ist, denn zuerst muesste man die TAP Projekte, Firmen untersuchen, wo die Nghradeta und Tropojaner: Bashkim Ulaj ja als Mafia Vertreter fuehrend sind. Geldwaesche Paradies der Italienischen und EU Mafia. Alles bekannt, diese korrupten Orgien, der Mega Konzerne wie BP, so die Norweger das Projekt verliessen, ihre Anteile verkauften.

Generalsekretär des Europarates: fordert unabhängige Ermittlungen in das Mafia Projekt der TAP Pipeline auch gegen die EU-Commission

Alles lange bekannt, das jeder OSCE Abgesandte ebenso sofort bestochen wird, der dort auftaucht, wobei der Name Wolfgang Grossruck, einer Ratte hier nicht faellt, aber als besonders korrupt bekannt, wie der EU Kommissar: Johannes Hahn und Knut Fleckenstein. Die TAP Gaspipeline, ein kriminelles Produkt, der EU was lange bekannt ist, wo serioere Firmen schon ausstiegen, der Ausstieg vom Europarat, Experten schon lange gefordert wird.

The Azerbaijani Laundromat is a complex money-laundering operation and slush fund that handled $2.9 billion over a two-year period through four shell companies registered in the UK.

The scheme was uncovered through a joint investigation by Berlingske (Denmark), OCCRP, The Guardian (UK), Süddeutsche Zeitung (Germany), Le Monde (France), Tages-Anzeiger and Tribune de Genève (Switzerland), De Tijd (Belgium), Novaya Gazeta (Russia), Dossier (Austria), Atlatszo.hu (Hungary), Delo (Slovenia), RISE Project (Romania), Bivol (Bulgaria), Aripaev (Estonia), Czech Center for Investigative Journalism (Czech Republic), and Barron’s (US).

From 2012 to 2014, even as the Azerbaijani government arrested activists and journalists wholesale, members of the country’s ruling elite were using a secret slush fund to pay off European politicians, buy luxury goods, launder money, and otherwise benefit themselves.

Banking records revealing some 2.5 billion euro (US$ 2.9 billion) in transactions were leaked to the Danish newspaper Berlingske, which shared them with OCCRP. The two outlets then organized a collaborative investigation to track down where the money went.

The result is the Azerbaijani Laundromat — so called because the vast sums that passed through it were laundered through a series of shell companies to disguise their origin. The project reveals the many uses to which the country’s kleptocratic ruling clique puts some of its billions.

Among other things, the money bought silence. During this period, the Azerbaijani government threw more than 90 human rights activists, opposition politicians, and journalists (such as OCCRP journalist Khadija Ismayilova) into prison on politically motivated charges. The human rights crackdown was roundly condemned by international human rights groups.

Meanwhile, at least three European politicians, a journalist who wrote stories friendly to the regime, and businessmen who praised the government were among the recipients of Azerbaijani Laundromat money. In some cases, these prominent individuals were able to mobilize important international organizations, such as UNESCO and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, to score PR victories for the regime.

Nor do major Western financial institutions escape responsibility. The banking records in the leak — over 16,000 transactions in all — reveal that the core of the Azerbaijani Laundromat was formed by four shell companies registered in the United Kingdom. The country’s lax regulations allowed these companies to file registration paperwork that listed proxy or non-existent shareholders and disguise their true origins.

Moreover, the records show that Danske Bank, a major European financial institution, turned a blind eye to transactions that should have raised red flags. The bank’s Estonian branch handled the accounts of all four Azerbaijani Laundromat companies, allowing the billions to pass through it without investigating their propriety.

A majority of the payments went to other secretive shell companies similarly registered in the UK, indicating that the full extent of the scheme may be much larger than is currently known. Large amounts also went to companies in the UAE and Turkey. (Some of the transactions involve companies in the Russian Laundromat, a vast money laundering scheme previously exposed by OCCRP.)

The subsequent flow of much of these funds is unknown. But the records reveal that millions of dollars ended up in the accounts of companies and individuals across the world, including luxury car dealerships, football clubs, high-end travel agencies, and hospitals. Many of these recipients would not have understood the problematic nature of the transfers, and cannot be accused of doing anything improper. But their involvement reveals the many uses to which the scheme’s operators put their money.

The recipients also included prominent Azerbaijanis with government positions or connections. These include the family of Yaqub Eyyubov, Azerbaijan’s first deputy prime minister, who is one of the country’s most powerful politicians.

They also include Ali Nagiyev, a man responsible for battling corruption in Azerbaijan. As it turns out, he and his family were major users of the system.

Another $130 million likely went to AvroMed, a major drug company co-founded by Javashir Feyziyev, a member of the Azerbaijani parliament who specializes in building relationships with EU politicians. (The recipient’s actual ownership is hidden, but its records match what is known about the pharmaceutical giant.)

But where did all this money come from? Its precise origin is unclear — again, hidden behind a series of secretive shell companies — but there is ample evidence of its connection to the family of President Ilham Aliyev.

Almost half of the $2.9 billion came from an account held in the International Bank of Azerbaijan (IBA) by a mysterious shell company linked to the Aliyevs. The second and third biggest contributors were two offshore companies with direct connections to a regime insider. Some of the money came directly from various government ministries. Mysteriously, another portion came from Rosoboronexport, a state-owned Russian arms exporter. It is clear that the full extent of the Azerbaijani Laundromat will be explored for years to come.

What is a Laundromat?

The Azerbaijani Laundromat is the name given to a complex money-laundering operation that handled US$ 2.9 billion over a two-year period thanks to four shell companies registered in the United Kingdom.

 

The Southern Gas Corridor, a system of mega-pipelines meant to bring gas from the Caspian region to Europe, is unnecessary in light of gas demand projections but will boost Azerbaijan’s dictatorial regime and cause damage to local communities and the environment.

    Dirk Eckert

    Das Land in der Hand einer Familiendynastie kämpft mit dem Preisverfall des Öls und hat mit Milliarden Lobbyarbeit bei Politiker und Journalisten gemacht

    Alles hell erleuchtet, vom Flughafen bis in die Innenstadt. So präsentiert sich Baku den Besuchern. Das Land des Feuers nennt sich Aserbaidschan traditionell, wegen der Erdöl- und Erdgasvorkommen im Lande. Deswegen sind die großen Häuser an den Hauptstraßen der Stadt hell erleuchtet, ebenso wie die Altstadt. Schlendert man die Promenade entlang, sieht man auch die Baku Crystal Hall leuchten, wo 2012 der Eurovision Song Contest stattfand.

    Aber nicht nur Lampen setzt Aserbaidschan ein für den schönen Schein. Jetzt an die Öffentlichkeit gelangte Bankdaten zeigen, wie die Regierung in Baku Lobbyarbeit in Europa macht. „Kaviar-Diplomatie“ heißt das inzwischen. Die Daten hat das internationale Recherchenetzwerk OCCRP veröffentlicht. Demnach wurden rund 3 Milliarden US-Dollar aus Aserbaidschan über vier britische Unternehmen gewaschen. Das Geld wurde dann verwendet, um westliche Politiker und Journalisten gewogen zu halten….

      Approximately 95% of the total 55,000 pipes to be used for the construction of the pipeline have been received in Greece,
      Albania and Italy.

      TAP
      said on September 7 that the Trans Adriatic Pipeline is now more than 50% completed, nearly 16 months after construction began, including all
      engineering, procurement and construction scope.
      TAP is a natural gas pipeline project, which will start in Greece and crosses Albania and the Adriatic Sea to end in southern Italy bringing
      gas from the Caspian region to European markets.

      “To date, our teams have collectively worked over 16 million manhours and driven approximately 43 million kilometres without a major
      incident,” TAP said.

      TAP’s contractors have cleared approx. 70% of the project route in Greece and Albania (539 kilometres out of 765 kilometres). Also, over
      45% of welded steel pipes are already in the ground (backfilled).
      Approximately 95% of the total 55,000 pipes to be used for the construction of the pipeline have been received in Greece, Albania and
      Italy. The last shipment of offshore line pipes has been offloaded in Brindisi, Italy, between 3 and 6 September 2017, TAP said.

      More than 5,500 people have been working for the project across TAP’s host countries – over 85% of which have been staff employed locally.

      TAP has implemented a wide range of social and environmental investment (SEI) programmes in the communities along its route. Substantial projects are due to be rolled out in the upcoming months. In total, TAP will invest over €55 million in SEI in Greece, Albania and Italy.

      “We are pleased that TAP continues to progress on time and on budget. We therefore remain on track to deliver the first Shah Deniz II gas in 2020, bringing a much-needed new source of energy into the European energy network,” TAP Managing Director Luca Schieppati said.
      “I want to underline that our project is built with the utmost care for the environment. Our teams are working very carefully along our
      route to ensure that the land on which construction has been completed is returned to the owners or users in its original condition or better. We are also collaborating with local authorities and local stakeholders to ensure that the benefits of our project are tangible across all those communities crossed by the pipeline.” Schieppati added.

      IAP pipeline, Albania demands support from the US and EU
      Albania has completed the drafting of the Gas Master Plan and has built good cooperation with Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and the Energy Community to realize IAP project, alongside TAP project, which is underway.

      Meanwhile, Albania is confident that this project is also supported by the United States of America and the European Union.

      This was announced today by the Albanian minister of Energy, Damian Gjiknuri in the meeting held in Tirana on the Adriatic-Ionian Pipeline project between representatives included in it.
      IAP Gas Pipeline
      Meanwhile, the US ambassador to Albania, Donald Lu said during this meeting that Europe must be relieved from its dependence on Russian gas. Therefore, according to him, projects such as TAP and IAP, which Albania is part of, have a special importance.

      On the other hand, the EU ambassador to Albania, Romana Vlahutin said that the gasification of the Balkans makes countries not only more connected, but also brings them closer to the EU.

      “Energy reform not only brings benefits for Albania, but it also offers opportunities for transfer of technology. We welcome cooperation between EU countries and increases the investors’ interest”, she added. /balkaneu.com/

      Briefing for the EIB Board of Directors for the EIB
      , September 2017

      Why the EIB should not finance TANAP?
      Dear Board of Directors,
      We are writing to you in regards to the Trans Anato
      lian Gas Pipeline (TANAP) which is part of the
      Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) that is supposed to bri
      ng gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. Azerbaijan just
      recently hit the news when an investigation by a co
      nsortium of journalist revealed facts about the
      “Azerbaijani Laundromat” in early September
      1
      .
      TANAP does not guarantee energy security
      Additionally, the Southern Gas Corridor fails to ge
      nuinely contribute to European energy security. The
      Energy Union, a priority project of the current Com
      mission, has among its objectives a) the diversific
      ation
      of energy sources, b) the EU becoming less dependen
      t on energy imports, c) making the EU the world
      number one in renewable energy and leading the figh
      t against global warming. Building the SGC does not
      help on any of these objectives: just replacing one
      gas supplier (Russia) by another (Azerbaijan) upho
      lds
      the dependence on energy imports. It is no diversif
      ication of energy sources, especially since the Rus
      sian
      company Lukoil owns 10 percent in the Azeri Shah De
      niz field which will feed the SGC. A real
      diversification would be to replace gas as much as
      possible by increased energy efficiency and renewab
      les.
      Especially Eastern Europe, which depends very much
      on Russian gas, still has huge potential for gains

      /news/the-pipeline-of-the-three-regimes-1.299786
      ………………
      In addition, a study from the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies from July 2016 found that the gas reserves of Azerbaijan are not sufficient to feed the pipeline for its lifetime and more gas will have to be im ported from other countries
      10
      . Ironically in the light of the diversification-away-from-Russia argument, one of these countries is likely to be Russia: Turkey and Greece have both signed bilateral agreements that a llow Gazprom gas to be transported through the Southern
      Gas Corridor. In addition the deal signed in October 2016 between Turkey and Russia on the Turkish Stream shows that one section of Turkish Stream will be in a position to connect to the planned junction at
      Ipsala-Kipoi of the Trans Anatolian pipeline (TANAP) and Trans Adriatic pipeline (TAP). Ultimately this would mean that the Southern Gas Corridor might bebuilt with strong public support to diversify gas supply away from Russian gas, only to allow Russian gas into the pipeline once it is readily built.
      Dear Directors, as Board members you should ensure that those concerns are being seriously addressed. Therefore, we call on you to suspend the appraisal process of TANAP and not to enter into a deal which is likely to become a black hole for EU public finance and a threat to EIB’s reputation.
