The City of London Corporation’s Role in Drugs and Green Genocide Is the Same
Aug. 13, 2019 (EIRNS)—The City of London Corporation, which helped create the Green Financial Initiative (GFI), through which it intends to make the City of London into the center of green finance—financing what it hopes is tens of trillions of dollars into Malthusian projects—is also the hub of the banks’ world drug-money laundering and financing.
The City of London, which occupies 1.2 square mile (it’s even known as the Square Mile) inside the British capital, London, is a medieval institution, with feudalist thinking, that is the instrument of the British oligarchy. Literally, feudal guilds elect the Corporation’s leader, the Lord Mayor of London, who is distinct from the mayor of the U.K. capital.
In 2015, the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency issued a threat assessment, which stated, “We assess that hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars of criminal money almost certainly continue to be laundered through U.K. banks, including their subsidiaries, each year.” This report was featured in the Independent on July 4, 2015, under the headline, “London Is Now the Global Money-Laundering Center for the Drug Trade, Says Crime Expert.” Citing expert Robert Saviano, the Independent wrote, “the cheapness and ease of laundering dirty money through U.K.-based banks gave London a key role in the drugs trade.”
On Sept. 28, 2018, TruePublica, a U.K.-based investigative website, reprised from one its 2016 reports: “In 2016, [Parliament’s] Home Select Affairs Secret Committee concluded that the London property market was the primary avenue for the laundering of £100 billion of illicit money a year. Yes, £100 billion laundered each year—in property alone.”
What is the black-box called the City of London Corporation? William the Conqueror, in 1067, one year after the Norman barbarians’ conquest of England, granted a charter, specifying special privileges, to the citizens inhabiting this quarter of London. Subsequent Royal Charters were proffered by Britain’s rulers over the centuries.
At the last census, the City of London had only 7,325 people living inside it, but hosts 2,700 bank and insurance companies, the Bank of England, and altogether 23,580 businesses that employ a workforce of 513,000.
This is the network which the book first commissioned by Lyndon LaRouche in 1978, Dope, Inc.: Britain’s Opium War against the U.S., directly went after; some in the Corporation fear that Brexit could limit its powers.
