"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

RFC: Add in Popular Culture section?[edit]

Editors' comments here are supportive of including a section about "Popular culture" to the article. I recommend following the guideline at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Trivia sections#"In popular culture" and "Cultural references" material (MOS:POPCULT). Here is some advice from the guideline:

Short cultural references sections should usually be entirely reworked into the main flow the article. If a separate section for this material is maintained, the poorest approach is a list, which will attract the addition of trivia. It is preferable to develop a normal article section with well-written paragraphs that give a logically presented overview (often chronological and/or by medium) of how the subject has been documented, featured, and portrayed in different media and genres, for various purposes and audiences.

The guideline also notes:

Such sections are most often titled "In popular culture", though some more encyclopedic alternatives are in increasing use, e.g. "Cultural references".

A section titled "Cultural references" might be more appropriate than "In popular culture".

Greetings my fellow Wikipedians,

I just stumbled on this article and wanted to request comments on an addition of a section to this article. I am in the process of reading The Firm by John Grisham. This book, and its film adaptation, makes frequent reference to the Caymans and its establishments; additionally, the book's plot revolves heavily around the islands. I'm also very certain that other books, shows, or movies at least make passing mention of the island. I have seen numerous "In Popular Culture" sections in other articles. For example, take many of the military rank articles. I don't see these, however, on many other kinds of articles, even though they may be beneficial. I feel that is the case here. I'd like to hear other editors' opinions, and would very much like to see this section added here.

Thank you for your time and comments,

  • Comment There doesn't seem to be any guidelines about this at the moment. From a brief survey I just did now, most geographical articles don't seem to have such a section. That said, I had a look at Wake Island#Popular culture references and Tristan da Cunha#Tristan da Cunha in popular culture. Since Cayman Islands is a group of small islands, I guess adding a section should be OK. It should be fine, as long as the content in the section is well cited, is not given undue weight and "Cayman Islands" plays a major part in the notable book/movie (I would definitely not include passing references here). It is best if there are secondary citations that associate Cayman Islands to this book. . --Lemongirl942 (talk) 13:12, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Cons:[edit]

Has anyone ever bothered to mention the fast ´police´ style action and multiple international security and fraud cons that come from this island? In the 90´s there was a fast array of ´financial´ security cons whom postulated one ´new´ come and upper corporation after another, all with anotations in the Cayman Island. A part of their lifestyle is derived from securities and trade fraud, with the localized ´bobbies´, UK trained each one, running around making certain that no private individual will ever be able to find out whom on that island would be the new international ´securities´ fraudster.

None of the wealth that is there, has any potencial of having any collaterol basis backed by the cayman island itself, and with the instances of bankruptcy and dependency of the united kingdom, no collaterol basis would be forthcoming from that side.

Perhaps you should place notification, international private banking has changed, these days it´s the ´bankruptcy´ resolving enterprises from the UK and the Caribean whom manage your private banking, while sacking and pilfering the remainder in high end courts where not even a millionaire could expend for their ´lawyer´ fees and advice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.77.88.137 (talk) 19:47, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

THE Cayman Islands[edit]

You need to start with the correct name of the country which starts with THE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:6C1:C100:C0F:BD04:988:EABC:FF1F (talk) 12:29, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
