African countries worst violators cited in Panama Papers

Countries in Africa are among the worst offenders cited in the so-called Panama Papers. As we may recall, the Panama Papers are a set of millions of leaked documents detailing attorney-client information for more than 214,000 offshore companies.

With more than 20 thousand civilian ca...


Syria At The Crossroads

The civil conflict has ceased to be just internal or regional. The unstable situation in Syria has also led to polarization among the world powers. The situation in this Middle Eastern country is such that it is no longer possible to speak about stability in the future whether the Asad regime is overthrown or remains in power.By the end of the first week in March government troops had dealt a crushing blow to the rebels, taking the town of Homs, the main districts of which had up to now been controlled by anti-government groups.
