UPDATED on March 12, 2017

Stupidly, Dirk Laureyssens made accusations that we “published falsified documents” with his name on them, “to make people believe” he is “involved in tax havens in Panama”.

He could defend himself with a smarter lie, if he would have said that the person named in the presented documents is not him, but another Dirk Laureyssens. By his stupid accusations, he just recognized, he is the person mentioned in the otherwise publicly accessible Panama documents.  Thank you, Mr. Laureyssens!

If he would not have reacted, we still have enough proof that he has been connected to the  Creative City S.A. or Creative City Limited, as he has involved that Panama corporation in his famous trial versus Idea Group, Inc. and Days Off Designs, Inc., and he used Creative City to trade his copyrights, same as he used Ben Ebki, Inc. of Delaware, U.S.A.

We added more data, and we provided links to the sources, where ever it was possible, thus please feel free to check the truth of the presented facts.

If somebody would have any doubts about the truth of the data presented here about Dirk Laureyssens’ companies in tax havens as Panama, Delaware, Nevada etc., it is always possible to ask the help of the Belgian Financial Intelligence Processing Unit.

I-Graphics CVBA was established on 7/31/1990 and Happy Machines NV was established on 8/5/1991 in Belgium, and a shell company Ben Ebki Inc. was established on 9/10/1992 in Delaware tax haven of USA

After two new companies established as family business, in addition to existing companies Happy CV and I Love Love Company NV (which later will be merged in Happy BVBA on 2/21/1997), why not establish another company in Delaware offshore tax haven in order to skim the copyrights profits?

A top haven for tax cheats that may surprise you: the US
