    Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man have released proposals to gradually open up the registers of who ultimately owns companies in the island, meaning the EU, businesses and eventually the general public will have some level of access over the next four years.

    Quote Message: It took the allied powers six months to plan and successfully carry out the D-Day landings. It took Thomas Edison two years to create the light bulb. The Crown Dependencies have today set out a three-year plan to table a discussion in parliament with no commitments and no details on whether they will comply with emerging international standards on beneficial ownership transparency. from John Christensen Tax Justice Network

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Sark is looking for a new Seneschal.

    It's the most senior job in the island's government, and residents of Sark are being invited to apply.

    The equivalent of Guernsey's Bailiff, the Seneschal oversees both civil and criminal court proceedings in Sark's government.

    There's been a Seneschal on the island since Queen Elizabeth I was on the throne in the 1500s.

    The job description comes with strict requirements, including the need for decisiveness, integrity, independence of mind, a commitment to justice, fair treatment and ability to maintain authority when challenged.


    Current Seneschal Jeremy La Trobe Bateman has to retire at the age of 65, although under Sark Law he can reapply for a further five-year term.

    Applications must be in by Monday 1 July.
