New letter from 2 dozen attorneys general calls on U.S. to end anonymous shell companies.

For years, the United States has been a global leader in providing anonymous shell companies, allowing arms dealers and autocrats to move their money with minimal oversight.

First, the Delaware secretary of state came forward in June to announce his office’s support for ending anonymity in the world of company formation, and demanding information about the beneficial owners setting up companies from coast to coast.

And on Thursday, in a move that transparency watchdog Global Witness has called “unprecedented,” some two dozen attorneys general from across the country have signed a joint, bipartisan letter calling for the end of anonymous shell companies in the U.S.
