Paul Mora receives the first Interpol warrant in the Cum/Ex tax trading strategy

Paul Mora InterpolThe first international warrant has been served to Paul Mora for his participation as trader in the tax case. Germany, Denmark and Belgium are all trying to extradite Paul Mora, a trader they say was playing a decisive role in the cum-Ex trades, starting as soon as 2009.

He is being extradited after “the 53-year-old told a Wiesbaden court last year that he would skip his tax fraud trial because of New Zealand’s low -19 infection rate and argued that he wouldn’t get a fair hearing in Germany.”

Mr. Mora faces a maximum sentence of 15 years of imprisonment.
