Joerg Haider Hid Millions in Liechtenstein Accounts

[1]Com­ment: The late Aus­tri­an fas­cist leader appears to have hid mil­lions in Liecht­en­stein accounts. Long a mon­ey-laun­der­ing vehi­cle [2] for var­i­ous fas­cist and crim­i­nal ele­ments [3], Liecht­en­stein has become a focal point for var­i­ous coun­tries seek­ing accounts belong­ing to tax dodgers in their respec­tive coun­tries.

Note that his Free­dom Par­ty began as a vehi­cle for the polit­i­cal resuci­ta­tion for Aus­tri­an Nazis who had served the Third Reich.

“Far-right Aus­tri­an Leader Joerg Haider Secret­ly Had 40 Mil­ion Pounds in Liecht­en­stein”; Telegraph.co.uk; 8/1/2010. [4]

Excerpt: More than 45 mil­lion euros in unde­clared cash belong­ing to Austria’s late far-right leader Joerg Haider has been found in the secre­tive Euro­pean prin­ci­pal­i­ty of Liecht­en­stein, accord­ing to reports.

Pros­e­cu­tors from Ger­many, Aus­tria and Liecht­en­stein found 12 shell com­pa­nies whose Liecht­en­stein bank accounts Haider had access to, Pro­fil mag­a­zine report­ed. The accounts cur­rent­ly still have 5 mil­lion euros of deposits, it said.

The mon­ey was found in an inves­ti­ga­tion by Aus­tri­an and Ger­man author­i­ties into the near-col­lapse of Aus­tri­an bank Hypo Group Alpe Adria, once owned by the Aus­tri­an region of Carinthia, which Haider gov­erned until he died in a car crash in 2008. . . .
