The choice of article for this week is centred on the continued controversy surrounding "golden visas".
This week's editor's choice of article is on the theme of citizenship-by-investment programmes and how they have drawn frowns from policymakers in Europe, potentially affecting would-be applicants from around the world, such as from Asia, the Middle East, the former Soviet Union, Africa and Latin America. With money laundering concerns becoming daily news, they have added to the angst about whether some of these "golden visas" are being given away too easily. This is an issue we continue to track.
