Greek Whistleblower/Journalist Risks Imprisonment
Truth telling criminalized in Greece.
by Stephen Lendman

Press freedom and whistleblowing should be inviolate. Not in today's corrupt money controlled world. More on this below.
A previous article discussed a recent Tax Justice Network (TJN) USA report. It estimates up to $32 trillion of hidden and stolen wealth stashed largely tax-free secretly.
"The Price of Offshore Revisited " reveals what super-rich elites want concealed. Governments let them avoid taxes. Societal costs are huge. Ill-gotten gains are free to make more of them. Only ordinary people pay what they owe. Many pay too much.
