Corbyn: UK Queen Should Apologize for Offshore Investments
TEHRAN (FNA)- The UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn said Queen Elizabeth should apologize after her name appeared in the so-called Paradise Papers, a collection of leaked documents linking businesses and individuals to offshore investments and tax avoidance.
Speaking at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) annual conference, Corbyn said the revelations contained in the leak were “shocking,” and added that “widespread tax avoidance and evasion on an industrial scale must lead to decisive action and real change,” Politico reported.
Asked if he thought the queen should apologize, Corbyn said according to City A.M., “Anyone who is putting money into a tax haven … should do two things, they should apologize and recognize what it does for society.”
“Who loses out? Schools, hospitals, housing,” he added.
According to the leaked documents, some £10 million of the queen’s private money was invested in funds in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda by the Duchy of Lancaster, which provides the queen with an income.
A spokesperson for the Duchy of Lancaster told the BBC that the all of the investments “are fully audited and legitimate.”
