WALLINGFORD, Conn., April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthony Parent, founder of IRSMedic.com and a partner at Parent & Parent LLP, is pleased to announce the release of a recent podcast that takes an in-depth look at the Panama Papers. Titled "The Lie Behind the Panama Papers," the podcast, which aired on April 6, 2016, is part of the firm's series "The Parental Advisory Show."
The Panama Papers, notes Parent, refers to a massive leak of documents that was published by the ICIJ.
"Conventional wisdom tells us the Panama Papers leak is a brave and sorely needed disclosure," noted the international tax attorney, adding that in the recent podcast, which is available on YouTube, he and co-host Claudine Gindel shed the light on the true crime: the disclosure of private banking information of people accused of absolutely no wrong-doing.
"But we've had clients wrongfully imprisoned, their stuff wrongfully seized, kidnapped and ransomed, so you know, these people are kind of sensitive about keeping their affairs private. It absolutely disgusts us that this so-called journalist group is so casual about disclosing sensitive information about people, and a law firm that didn't even break one law," Parent said.
During the podcast, Gindel spoke on a glaring hypocrisy: that the same people who take delight in "the rich" having their personal affairs exposed, are the people who demand that the government not be able to have access to their iPhones.
"It's another case of privacy for me, but not for thee," Gindel stated.
"Whatever virtue there was in disclosing the financial affairs of claimed international criminals involved in things like offshore banking is completely eviscerated by releasing the information of people who again, did absolutely nothing wrong," Parent added.
