Nigel Green, CEO of the deVere Group, has issued a strong statement of support for Boris Johnson, Mayor of London. Mr. Green is well known for his opposition to FATCA and CBT and has been a consistent champion for US Persons worldwide. Green declared, via his blog:
“Boris Johnson’s noble and brave stance against this fatally flawed, imperialistic and economically dangerous law, means he is legally in the wrong, yet morally he is right.
“Whilst I wouldn’t advocate that individuals do not comply with FATCA – instead they should explore all the available options to mitigate its adverse effects - I do hope the Mayor’s apparent FATCA crusade will serve as a call to arms to other high profile personalities to publicly express their opposition to this highly-polemical new law.”
