CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Cyprus Freezes Accounts, AVN and Manwin Bank There

To make a long story short Cyprus banks are in trouble and they need bailing out by the EU.  The agreement being that Cyprus will levy a 6% charge on all accounts with under 100,000 euros and a 10% charge on all accounts over 100,000 euros.  The percentage taken will be converted to bank stock, which is virtually worthless.

Savings accounts in Cyprus have been frozen and ATMs are all empty.  The countries legislators will vote on this tomorrow and it is expected to pass.  Cypriot banks have long been tax shelters and places to hide ill gotten gains for eastern European crime syndicates.

Interestingly both Manwin and AVN are headquartered (officially) in Cyprus.  AVN’s Theo Sapoutzis is a Cypriot.

Manwin has been in the process of relocating it’s headquarters to Dublin, Ireland but they apparently still have cash assets in Cyprus.

Looks like people are going to have to look elsewhere to launder money now…..
