If successful and unchecked at its root, the "ZABA" "acquisiton" could be a model for a new type of financial/banking malversation in the 21st century, in which gigantic, publicly-traded multinationals, in order to "enhance" their book values, simulate "acquisitions" of questionably capitalized companies in small countries with weak oversite/regulatory mechanisms, in the process forming partnerships with local, criminalized "elites," which, in turn, are allowed to infiltrate legitimate Western corporate and financial arenas and markets.


This would prove to be an imminent danger not only to Western capital markets but to Western countries' national securities.
