Seeing is believing

I met a man who'd been one of the auditors of Parmalat, the Italian dairy company which became embroiled in massive fraud and went spectacularly bust in 2003. The auditor said that he thought that it was strange that a company whose main businesses were milk and mozzarella cheese for the Italian market, had offices in the Cayman Islands. He visited one its milk factories in Rome. When he arrived, it was all locked up and there was no evidence of any work going on that day. He eventually managed to get into the building. It was completely empty.

Did that give him an excuse to then go and visit the Cayman Islands?

The Cayman Islands operation was a casino, possibly literally!
