Het verhaal achter het Engelse imperialisme

Peter Cain interview for the documentary film “The Spider’s Web”. This interview did not make the final cut, however Peter Cain’s work is essential in providing an understanding of the City of London from a historical perspective. We highly recommend his co-authored work “British Imperialism: 1688-2015”, which is one of the sources for the Spider’s Web documentary.

Hoe de Engelse overheid het Sandstorm Report wilde onderdrukken

Deleted scene from The Spider’s Web documentary. Prem Sikka’s court case for the release of the Sandstorm Report. The Sandstorm report was the name of the secret report submitted on June 22, 1991 by financial consultants Price Waterhouse to the Bank of England, showing that the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) had engaged in widespread fraud, and that organizations regarded as terrorist groups had maintained several accounts in BCCI in London, with the apparent knowledge of the British and American intelligence community. Sandstorm was Price Waterhouse’s codename for BCCI. The British government attempted to suppress the release of the Sandstorm Report.
