In June the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) published its list of 15 nations deemed to be uncooperative in the fight against money laundering, and for those offshore jurisdictions included on the blacklist, the action still rankles. The Bahamas was one of the offshore financial centres featured, and now its former Attorney General Paul L Adderley has weighed in with his views on the now infamous list. His line is that the blacklisting of the Bahamas was one hundred per cent orchestrated, and driven not by enemies but by friends.
