BELMOPAN, Belize, Oct. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Earlier this month, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and the Washing Post released the Pandora Papers. In the Pandora Papers, Belize was listed as a prime tax haven and secrecy jurisdiction. Belizean lawyer and owner of Glenn D Godfrey and Company LLC, as well as leading financial services company CILTrust, Glenn Godfrey was accused of being a main figure in setting up illegal offshore facilities for United States clients.
Today, Glenn Godfrey is looking to set the record straight.
In a statement released to the public, Godfrey said, “We maintain that our firm never had as a client, the individual in question in the Pandora Papers. Our due diligence was completed to ensure that we never served the client in the capacity alleged by the media report in question.”
Godfrey continued, “We have written to the consortium seeking a complete retraction of all its references and reports in relation to my person and Glenn D Godfrey as a legal firm. The report is seriously defamatory and has to cause irreplicable damage to my person and the legal firm’s reputation. Should the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists refuse to accede to our demand, we will seek legal redress.”
Despite the report, neither Godfrey nor CILTrust have ever been charged with any wrongdoing related to offshore accounts.
Glenn Godfrey is available for comment and will continue to do everything in his power to clear the good name of both Glenn D Godfrey and Company, LLC and CILTrust as both businesses have earned sterling reputations based on the quality of their work.
