Amnesty International Closes India Offices, Citing Government Attacks

SRINAGAR, Kashmir — The human rights organization Amnesty International said on Tuesday that it had ceased its operations in India and laid off its entire staff in response to a series of government reprisals including the freezing of its bank accounts.

Amnesty said that the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had targeted the organization for years in response to its work exposing human rights violations in India. In recent months, the group has published reports on the Delhi police’s role in fomenting anti-Muslim violence and on the use of torture in Kashmir.

The Indian government said in a statement that the allegations from Amnesty were “unfortunate, exaggerated and far from the truth.” The organization has repeatedly violated local laws by circumventing the regulations under which foreign entities can receive donations from abroad, the government added.

“All the glossy statements about humanitarian work and speaking truth to power are nothing

From the Tax Law Offices of David W. Klasing

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — U.S. citizens with overseas assets or offshore bank or financial accounts are required to report these holdings to the IRS each year on a “Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts,” or “FBAR.” Failure to do so can result in fines that will be enhanced if your actions are deemed to have been willful. Aside from this, taxpayers who fail to file FBAR can also be subject to the “fraudulent failure to file” penalty relating to your overall return, but only if their actions were sufficiently deliberate. Since the standards for both of these actions seem essentially the same- the deliberate attempt to avoid tax liability by failing to file documents- you might think that if a court were to sustain the application of one of these penalties, they would sustain the other.
