In the early 1990s, Information Technology specialist Klaus Lins claimed to have discovered evidence that a Liechtenstein fiduciary was misappropriating the assets of wealthy clients when they died, instead of distributing them to beneficiaries. Lins turned whistleblower but the only person who went to prison was him, for data theft. He also lost his home and his wife and he has since passed away. When one German beneficiary turned up at the fiduciary’s office in Liechtenstein, she was allegedly fobbed off with lies.
More recently, the family of Israeli tycoon Israel Perry has been waging a bitter legal war against a trust company in Liechtenstein in a so-far vain attempt to gain access to the deceased’s vast fortune.
At the upcoming OffshoreAlert Conference in London, British international criminal lawyer Steven Kay QC and European fraud investigator Marc Hürner will present evidence of questionable practices by Liechtenstein-based offshore service providers and discuss remedies.
The 7th Annual OffshoreAlert Conference Europe will take place at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, in London, on November 12-13th, 2018.
