The bottom line is that Dr. Stephen Kish – Chair of the Alliance For The Defence of Canadian Sovereignty and plaintiff in the Bopp FATCA Lawsuit, has formally renounced U.S. citizenship. He performed this act in Iceland which is the final resting place of Robert James Fischer – one of the most famous and well known cases of U.S. citizenship relinquishment.
JapanT – “First, no one can say that something will not change in the future and with the recent changes, it is unlikely that current safeguards will not also be amended.”
It’s the present one has to deal with, though – yet here you are worrying about whether laws might change in a country you don’t even live in. 🙂
This site owes its existance to laws in countries we don’t live in.
Unless I am currently fending off an attack or dodging a bullet, then the present takes care of itself. That being the case, I really should do something to evade that huge truck driving the wrong way in my lane before it and I occupy the same place and time.
Ok, finding them has taken on greater importance. I will continue the search.
Thanks for info on the FBAR fines and the possibility of them being used to revoke passports. I thought that they would/could be but could not cite anything.

CBT/FATCA does indeed affect people all over the world. Not so the UK Data Protection Act. You can safely take that one off your worry list.
I am not concerned about the UK Data Protection Act, I am concerned that every nation is caving in to the US.
