Andrew is the mere epitome of the reasons why anti-monarchists exist, to begin with. With each passing day, the world discovers that Andrew is just as bad as we thought he was and often more. This time The Daily Mail, uh, has uncovered Andrew ‘s lewd and shocking business deals all of which include illegal offshore tax havens.
Bombshell e-mails and documents obtained by The Mail On Sunday show that Andrew illegally pumped funds; influence, and the like into a Luxemburg based bank owned by one of his equally disturbing billionaire buddies Mr. Rowland. The e-mails paint a grim picture for a struggling royal family, who is gunning to reign in the stunning revelations from the disgraced prince.
The -emails reveal that Andrew used his taxpayer-funded role as a trade envoy to plug foreign businesses and such rather than UK businesses. The news in itself is not sitting well with taxpaying Britons who are demanding answers. First and foremost, the glaring conflict of interests between Andrew and Mr. Rowlands & Co are stunning yet not-quite-so-surprising.
At one point in their relationship, the twosome reportedly owned an offshore business in a popular tax haven. That came at a time in which Andrew used his role to funnel the Rowland family business (they own the Luxemburg bank in question) into the eyes and hands of wealthy and powerful clients. In case it couldn’t get any worse — Andrew has been revealed to on numerous occasions having passed the Rowland family confidential and top-secret government documents. A gross violation of the law.
