Our comments:  As if the banks weren't under the cosh enough at the moment - this timely and well argued report puts the squeeze on even further. It raises all sorts of difficult questions - how far can banks really vet the credentials of governments that they deal with? But the cases in the report are a compelling argument that more needs to be done to avoid relationships with the most obnoxious abusers.
