Illegal tax avoidance claims including Bridgette Radebe and Ian Khama 'express paradox

An overwhelming measurable examination concerning charges of illegal tax avoidance in Botswana against businessperson Bridgette Radebe and the nation's previous president, Ian Khama, has reasoned that the cases are a "finished and articulate false notion". Rainey said they didn't think of it as important to meeting or meet Botswana's indicting authority and that the ball was presently in its court to react.

The examination, directed by UK law office Omnia Plc, headed by Cherie Blair, and business knowledge firm Alaco Limited, brings up difficult issues about the freedom of Botswana's arraigning authority. Because of inquiries, Blair said Radebe had paid for the examination, yet she didn't have the subtleties of the amount Radebe had paid.

The record to which the cash was claimed to have been moved to was opened just nine years after the fact, he said. She said Radebe had explicitly educated that the examination be led without dread or favor. In actuality, it is generally talked about among online sources as a 'phony bank' and a vehicle for money related tricks". He said when they sent somebody to its enlisted address in Jakarta, it was a "humble private location".

Fifteen of the 17 ledgers alluded to in the oath didn't exist, not to mention have Radebe as a signatory, Rainey stated, and they were expecting similar responses for the other financial balances.

In any case, this was "unthinkable" in light of the fact that Odyssey Energy didn't exist as a corporate substance until 2013, he said. One of the banks Hubona alludes to — Mahkota Bank in Jakarta — is claimed in his testimony to have moved $48m (R832.2m) to Standard Bank in SA.
