"the Cayman Islands has a law where you can go to prison not just for revealing confidential private sector information, but merely for asking for it"[edit]

The Tax Justice Network says: "the Cayman Islands has a law where you can go to prison not just for revealing confidential private sector information, but merely for asking for it" [1] Is that true? -- Neudabei (talk) 07:52, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Pretty sure that is not accurate. Cayman has a Confidential Relationships Law, but that criminalises disclosure of confidential information - it doesn't do anything in relation to a person who requests it (properly or improperly). Cayman got a lot of adverse publicity recently because a judge struck down a request made under a Tax Information Exchange Agreement and cited that law in argument which might have lead to the confusion (although the main basis of the reasoning was that the requested information fell outside of the relevant time period that the TIEA applied). But this might be a better discussion topic to raise on the Law of the Cayman Islands talk page. --Legis (talk - contribs) 20:00, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Etimology[edit]

Cayman or caimán is either crocodile or alligator. Unsure of which, as one can habitate in saline and the other in fresh waters.75.237.73.181 (talk) 00:18, 20 March 2015 (UTC)ExternetMB
