Guy Verhofstadt mentioned in Paradise Papers dossier

November 21, 2017

The president of the Liberal ALDE Group in the European Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt, was a director of a corporation that appears in the Paradise Papers. The [leftist] PVDA [political party] publicized that today. “In the European Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt plays at being holier than thou to everyone. But as a director of the Exmar holding company he received 60,000 euros per year. Why did he never object to the shadowy offshore constructions of daughter Exmar Offshore Ltd. on Bermuda? We ask the European Parliament to start an investigation into the involvement of politicians in the Paradise Papers”, says Peter Mertens, chairman of the PVDA.
