A commentary has been addded entitled: Alternative facts and undisclosed sources in Citizenship by Investment. It argues that if any country fails to implement a rigorous and comprehensive system of vetting for citizenship by investment, it will eventually fall on its own sword, extinguishing any possibility of benefitting from the CIP as other nations shut out its passports except through onerous visa requirements. However, none of this stops detractors of the CIP from making unsubstantiated allegations, such as the Citizenship by Investment Unit “does not maintain adequate autonomy from politicians to prevent political interference in its decisions”. But truth often gets in the way of lie, and is cast aside to serve an unworthy purpose. It is precisely because detractors purvey false information designed to destroy CIP’s that even greater scrutiny has to be applied by the governments that operate them. The best defence is fact, truth and scrupulous transparency.
