Not-so-hidden wealth

Saturday, May 18, 2024

In response to this week’s property leaks, some politicians have said that their properties abroad were declared and denied any wrongdoing. One must ask if the properties were declared under the many amnesty schemes our governments have come up with. If so, did the government investigate how the money was transferred abroad?

What about those who say their properties were gifted to them? Were such properties declared before being gifted? We should re-visit such cases and award suitable punishment.
