Mafia expert Roberto Saviano, primarily a Criminal journalist dealing with Italian Mafia, has exposed that ‘Britain’ is the most corrupt country of the world.
During his lecture at the Hayy Literary Festival, Saviano told the attendees;
“If I asked you what is the most corrupt place on Earth you might tell me well it’s Afghanistan, maybe Greece, Nigeria, the South of Italy and I will tell you it’s the UK.
“It’s not the bureaucracy, it’s not the police, it’s not the politics but what is corrupt is the financial capital. 90 per cent of the owners of capital in London have their headquarters offshore.
“Jersey and the Cayman’s are the access gates to criminal capital in Europe and the UK is the country that allows it. That is why it is important why it is so crucial for me to be here today and to talk to you because I want to tell you, this is about you, this is about your life, and this is about your government.”
The UK was also previously ranked 10th in the Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index 2015; the index basically aims to find out the perceived levels of public sector corruption.
Furthermore, Saviano also commented on the enraging debate sparked amidst the UK leaving European Union. He expressed his concern as:
“Leaving the EU means allowing this to take place. It means allowing the Qatari societies, the Mexican cartels, the Russian Mafia to gain even more power and HSBC has paid £2 billion Euros in fines to the US government, because it confessed that it had laundered money coming from the cartels and the Iranian companies. We have proof, we have evidence.”
