Christian Aid protest calling for end to tax haven secrecy

Outside Foreign and Commonwealth Office main building, King Charles Street, London SW1A 2AH

A year after Britain’s tax havens agreed to consider the lifting the secrecy around who really owns the hundreds of thousands of companies they host, they have made alarmingly little progress.

Ministers from the Overseas Territories – which include the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda – start their annual conference in London at the FCO on Tuesday December 2.

Christian Aid campaigners wearing business suits and white masks will be outside as finance ministers arrive saying it is time to unmask who owns companies.
