The former employee of the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC bank Hervè Falciani considers it "logical" that the Spanish Constitutional Court has admitted as proof against fraud the list in which he denounced more than 130,000 potential tax evaders.
In his opinion, it is "good news, and it is logical if you follow the whole journey, which has been long," said Falciani on the decision of the Constitutional, which supports another previous Supreme and denies the protection requested by the engineer Sixto Delgado, sentenced to six years in prison for hiding 10 million euros in Switzerland.
Delgado appeared on the list that Falciani subtracted from HSBC bank in Switzerland, which led to the inspection of the Spanish Tax Agency.
"Spain has achieved what has cost much more effort in other countries, at all levels," said Falciani, who spoke at a conference on collaborative economy organized by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria.
In his opinion, the judicial path traveled in Spain and the role developed by the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office "can be an example and opens the way to establish a European Anti-Corruption Agency".
This is not contradictory with the need for the laws to be directed towards "federalism and decentralization" in order to gain in agility, something that he considers necessary after his personal experience.
This systems engineer believes that "a centralized solution has not worked so far", so he advocates this federalism "with a specific management adapted to the local environment".
When he began to collaborate with the administrations in France, for example, there was a judicial break for political reasons, so "the effort was moved to other countries, and the first and the best to respond was Spain, by its laws, its Constitution and its judicial organs, such as the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office and the National Court ".
"Decentralization prevents the blockade," said Falciani, who believes that "Spain has a very strong and relevant role" in the judicial field.
Regarding the collaborative economy, Falciani believes that until now it lacked a way to distribute the benefits, with a financial support capable of measuring the objective benefit that each agent of the network contributes.
"Currently, there is an innovation accounting financial technology that allows offers alternatives to corporate centralization, in a sustainable environment that generates wealth," he said.
Falciani has highlighted the "blockchain" technology and has mentioned, for example, the project of the Tactical Whistleblower association that promotes 'tabu', a sustainable cryptocurrency, based on an initial offer of coins launched last July.
In his opinion, one of the most noteworthy aspects is "the traceability of economic movements, not transparency, which can be a risk".
On the role that he develops in all that economic movement that he describes, Falciani believes that he is "one more, like all the others, all directed towards a common goal".
As for the resistance found by the collaborative economy movements, he believes that they will gradually impose themselves "in the same way that in history it has gone from a dictatorial or imperial model to federalism".
"We are only at the beginning, this change has come because the conditions have been given, as happened with the Industrial Revolution", which originated in a technological innovation, has stood out.
