Northern Ireland and Brexit: The border that isn't--yet (2017)

The risk of a hard border is a concern not just for farmers, traders and migrants. It could also upset Northern Ireland's peace process.

Jho Low gave S$276m to charities: New York Post

Other recipients of Mr Low's largesse included Panthera [glossy-pdf], a wild cat foundation created in 2014 by New York-born mineral mining billionaire Thomas Kaplan, which got US$20 million. Mr Kaplan is one of the biggest investors in gold and silver and has close ties to the British political establishment.

Mr Low also invested US$150 million in Mr Kaplan's company, Electrum Group LLC and joined its board for a time.

While the government is seizing the US$150 million that Mr Low invested in Electrum, which is cooperating, it has not made a claim against the Panthera charity.
