OffshoreAlert Conference Feb 2018

Michael Dunkley, who was Bermuda’s Premier from 2014 to 2017, will speak alongside Gerard Ryle, head of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, and Frederik Obermaier, one of the German reporters to whom both the Panama Papers and Paradise Papers databases were directly leaked.

“They will participate in a session entitled ‘The ICIJ v. OFCs: Witch-Hunt Or Public Service?’ that will look at the ICIJ’s investigations into offshore finance, what they revealed about the industry [good or bad], the organization’s motives, and whether the industry has been treated fairly or unfairly.”

“It’s one of 31 sessions, plus two cocktail receptions, that make up the 16th Annual OffshoreAlert North America Conference on financial intelligence and investigations, which will take place at the ocean-side Miami Beach Edition hotel on April 15-17.”

Mr Dunkley told Bernews, “I am pleased to have been invited and to be able to attend and speak at a prominent conference on an issue that has garnered world wide attention. Any opportunity to talk about Bermuda is an opportunity that must be seized to promote the island and also provide better awareness of who we are and what we do.”

    • the Real Terry says:

      As this is a Financial and Intelligence Conference I think Onion Juice, the most knowledgeable person in Bermuda on those subjects should be the speaker and certainly next in line would be Rocky 5

  2. me says:

    two cocktail receptions?

  3. Justin says:

    I say send Chris Famous instead. 24-12. LMAO!!

  4. Syrup says:

    Could you imagine anyone from the PLP attending this? No, they are too gutless. Fair play to Dunkley, he didn’t have to do this.

    • Not Exactly says:

      *shouldn’t do this

    • Jah says:

      Knowing the Milk Man he can’t stay out of the spot light and will sink Bermuda! Paradise Papers happened on his watch but he should but not be representing Bermuda on sensitive matters like this! Go away Milk Man you are irrelevant

      • Anbu says:

        Pretty sure he dont care abt being “irrelevant” as u put it. Lol. The man makes money in his sleep.

    • Alan says:

      You are joking right? Offshore Alert loves nothing more than trashing Bermuda and this little jaunt gives credibility to an outfit that has never wished us well. This is even dumber than Baron’s Mexico excursion.

  5. facts of the rock says:

    Famous and the plp wouldn’t last 5 minutes.

  6. Sharon says:

    Attending period is a very bad idea. David Marchant is no friend of Bermuda – ever since Dunkley’s UBP party pulled his work permit 30 some years ago. If my memory serves me correctly, Dunkley was on the Board of Immigration at the time. The best way to handle Marchant is stay far away.

  7. Optimistic says:

    He was probably invited when he was premier and didn’t inform the org that he was outsed. Sad man trying to hug the limelight. Sigh
