If they let Abramovich into Jersey they will not know what hit them.
Gangsters come to mind who bully governments into what they want, like dirty money going through the banks etc.
Next thing you know there will be loads of Russians in the island and not for our benefit!

Does anyone honestly think that he is going to come and live here?
Whoever granted him his,"Quallies", should be sacked immediately.
This whole, "Come to Jersey if your rich", quango should be disbanded.
Mega-wealthy immigrants do practically nothing for the local quality of life.
One property that these so-called ,"High worth immigrants", requires takes up more room than 100 local families would.

In the UK press recently it reads that Brussels’ is not happy that the Crown dependencies are " tax compliant" under the latest lists of offshore centres produced. Partly because Jersey took centre stage where it was claimed that Appleby had a deposit of $250,000,000,000 from Apple Computers say's the Paradise Papers.

This new EU directive of investigation has been reinforced due to Brexit. Starting next March the EU is to research all Crown Dependencies on an annual basis looking into financial matters. The UK Treasury came to Jersey's defense but after the latest reported scandal ? The EU has become a lot keener.

The EU vowed to draw up a blacklist of tax havens following the revelations in the Panama Papers.

Ok so we have heard it all before, but has the States and it's local media got super sensitive to all those eyes in yonder hills bearing down on the Offshore Finance centre called Jersey. The reason for this note is that I read (a borrowed copy of the JEP)  a whole front page that in big letters reported that Russian Mr Abramovich worth more than a reported eight Billion ( pick your own currency ) has been granted permission to live in Jersey and become a resident, but will his 370ft super yacht fit into the marina ?

Why the local media is super sensitive since the news appeared in hard copy but not one word is scripted or has appeared in the on line versions. It looks as though yet again a phone call has been made, and as the internet is world wide ( how ya all doing over there in Russia and Brussels ? )  the media are bending to the requests to keep Jersey out if the world spotlight, especially with possibly knives being  sharpened by the powerful EU tax authorities. Let us also remember, Mum's and Dad's may be extremly wealthy but will be wary of a Government that has a history ( as now proved ) of corporate child abuse.

You would have thought that the insular Jersey Media would have learned by now, the internet is far more powerful than they are, so should come clean in their reporting which means putting all front page and relevant local stories of interest online even a shortened version.
