Press release: Independent investigation requested by Ploum
06 April 2016
With great dismay Ploum has taken note of the report in the Dutch media on the Panama Papers. The firm cannot identify itself in any manner with the accusations which have been brought forward in this publicity.
For the sake of its good reputation and position Ploum has decided to request the Dutch Financial Supervising Office (in Dutch: Bureau Financieel Toezicht and herein after “BFT”), to perform an independent investigation on both cases which have been mentioned in the media. This request has already been received by the BFT. Ploumhas absolute faith in this investigation, in which it will of course give full cooperation.
To ensure full clarity, the current chairman of the board will give up his position. Rutger Ploum will fulfil his duties during this process.
