One of the most notorious in a long line of great British whitewashes was Lord Hutton't report into the suicide/murder of a civil servant who was suspected of leaking information (critical of the UK Government) to the press concerning the build-up to the war in Iraq.

The report represented a whitewash par excellence.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy.
