Governor of the Central Bank of FYROM, Dimitar Bogov has commented the case of “Panama Papers” and the suspicions that there may be citizens from FYROM involved in this affair.
“The investigation must be led by the Financial Intelligence Unit, Financial Police and the Department of Public Revenues. However, it will be very difficult to obtain evidence. Central banks cannot request such information”, declared Dimitar Bogov.
According to him, millions of Euros are taken abroad and their destinations are tax heavens such as Panama. He says that all the transactions that are made through the greatest world banks are controlled in a rigorous way and that all the money that come to FYROM through banks are controlled.
According to the laws in power, companies from FYROM can have accounts in foreign countries and establish companies abroad and in this stage, they can make money transfers, which will be checked to see where the money comes from and whether tax has been paid on them. /ibna/
