FINANCE MINISTRY ONCE AGAIN CONFIRMS WHAT BURSA HAS REPORTED BEFORE:
BURSA 11.09.2017

     Hundreds of millions of Euros have gone from our banks to tax havens, Minister of Public Finance Ionuț Mișa states, in an interview with a financial newspaper. The official thus confirms what BURSA has reported as early back as the beginning of March.
     The article published in March by BURSA caused major reactions in the system, as some bankers were extremely upset over the statements made by our sources. Now, the Minister of Public Finances confirms the statements made by BURSA, through the statements made publicly, which means that bankers who denied our article were mistaken.
     Ionuț Mișa said, according to the aforementioned publication: "We have three major probes under way with banks. We have told the people of the Romanian Banking Association the same thing: it is impossible to pay no profit taxes for ten years in a row. We monitor the payment statements monthly. Some amended tax returns have begun appearing. That means that banking institutions are starting to stop the selling of loans abroad without justification of their own accord. We have capped the deductibility at 30%, for banks as well as for other companies that sell receivables. It is only in one bank that we have established an additional profit, which should have been paid to the state over the last five years, amounting to 650 million lei. In that particular case there is also a criminal complaint involved. There have been some successive transactions to sell/buy receivables, by which some of the assets, worth hundreds of millions of Euros, went to tax havens.
     You have to realize that each of these transactions involving receivables also has collaterals behind it. For instance, there was a bank which sold abroad a receivable with a face value of 14 million Euros for 1 Euro, and the buyer told the Romanian company and simply told them: < < unless you accept me as a shareholder, I will demand the liquidation of the company > >. Just think that there are state owned companies that can end up in that situation when they borrow from foreign banks in Romania. Using that mechanism, they can be acquired for nothing. It can even be considered a matter of national security".
     In the article of March 7th, 2017 called "Sources: «Romanian banks - a vehicle by which multinationals take money out of the country»", BURSA wrote, quoting official, reliable sources, that Romanian banks do not pay taxes unless they want to, as they have a very complex profit reporting system.
     Banks are using special legislative provisions and the ones dedicated to the banking sector to avoid paying the profit tax, the quoted sources said, mentioning the unlimited deductibility of expenses with the sale of non-performing loans (NPL).
     Financial institutions sell non-performing loans within the group, (to a company in which the bank is a shareholder), to an offshore or to a company in which a former manager of the bank is a shareholder, the quoted sources told us: "The bank sells 100 million Euros worth of loans to an offshore, for a price of 7 million, with the recovery ratio being 35-40%, and the offshore in question concludes a contract with the bank to continue collecting the payments, paying it a commission of 1.8%. Under these circumstances, the profit of 28 million Euros (35 millions recovered less the 7 paid upon purchase) goes to other countries, doesn't stay here.
     In Romania, hostile corporate takeovers take place, our sources further told us, who explained: "I have a concrete case to give you - a Romanian company borrowed from a bank. The 14 million Euros loan became non-performing, and the bank sold it, together with the guaranteed assets, for 1 Euro, to a foreign company. The latter turned against the Romanian company to collect its receivable. To avoid foreclosing on the assets and causing the company to go bankrupt, and because the company didn't have cash, the company converted the receivable to stock, taking over a 33% stake in the company, for 2.1 million lei. Thus for one Euro, the foreign company acquired over the 2.1 million lei controlling stake in the Romanian company, in a hostile manner, as the buyer of the receivable thus took over the management of the company, which was listed on the stock exchange.
     The competent institutions should investigate whether banks together with foreign companies have a hostile takeover of Romanian companies. It is a matter of national security, which secret services should be involved in as well.
     In Romania, 95% of the banking system is privately owned, which means that whenever they want, banks can stop the funding of the Romanian economy, the quoted sources warn.

     Even without the court ruling rendered in first instance by the High Court of Cassation and Justice in the lawsuit of the fictitious hiring at the Child Protection Department of Teleorman the focus on getting all the institutional levers under the - informal, but all the more important - authority of Liviu Dragnea. But, after his conviction on June 21, this trend will speed up. But only through this kind of concentration of power can the president of the Chamber of Deputies hope to change not only the balance of power - which is already favorable to him, even though nothing is final in politics -, but the legislation based on which he has been sentenced, so that he gets exonerated of any legal responsibility. Or, when the powers of the state are concentrated in the hands of one man, democracy, even though it may be only a façade, moves aside to be replaced by autocracy. And in Romania, the temptation of autocracy, hidden under the veil of illiberalism, is more powerful than it has ever been, after the fall of communism. Could this be just an accident owed to the meteoric apparition of Liviu Dragnea?  click here to read the entire article

IN THE ROMANIAN BANANA REPUBLIC...
     The urge "Mircea, act like you're working!", back in the days of the so-called revolution of December 1989, was brought back recently by a new "director".
     We are talking of course, about the meeting between NBR governor Mugur Isărescu, and a government "delegation" led by chamber of deputies chairman Liviu Dragnea, together with PM Viorica Dăncilă.
     Sources from within the PSD, quoted by ziare.com, have claimed that, "in the meeting with the NBR governor, Liviu Dragnea seemed to be looking for a way out, and he seems confused, as he didn't expect his decisions to lead to such effects in the economy".  click here to read the entire article

     Liviu Dragnea's insistence in moving the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv, to Jerusalem, feeds an older, widespread confusion. Much older. Politically, Jerusalem has been divided from the first presence of the Judeans on the lands of the Palestinians, since back in the days of Abraham and Abimelec. "The indivisible Jerusalem" wanted by Benjamin Netanyahu is a spiritual creation.
     Definitely, pilgrims and locals claim that Jerusalem has a geography, meaning that the city would be compatible with the cardinal points and that is why Palestinians, Israelis and people overall, including those of the UN, EU and the US, speak about Eastern Jerusalem and Western Jerusalem, without anybody being surprised that that is happening at the center of the world, where the god of the Judeans began his creation, starting from the very rock from which later Archangel Gabriel raised Mohammed to visit Heaven, the same place of origin where one of the seven angels "and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God." (Apocalypse, 21: 10), where God is one of the same.  click here to read the entire article
