BONO (U2) SPEAKS IN SPANISH TO SAY HE DO NOT BELIEVE IN POLITICAL BORDERS

Madrid / The 40 Music Awards in Madrid recognized the Irish group U2 with a prize that its vocalist Bono, whose name appears related to the “papers of paradise”, thanked with a message in Spanish to emphasize that he is a “man of the world” and does not believe “in the political borders.”

“I sing to Spain and I’m sorry to the core, but before I’m a man of the world and brother of all, I certainly do not believe in political borders,” the musician said, reading a text prepared in Spanish.

Together with his partner Adam Clayton, they received one of the three “Golden Music Awards” in ceremony from their friend Penelope Cruz, who stressed that rock can also be caring.

“Besides being four geniuses and giving us so many songs that have marked us. I know that they go out of their way to help others and contribute to making this world better”, Penelope said.

Bono made no reference to the fact that his name is one of the 127 mentioned in the last massive filtering of documents of supposed tax evaders, baptized as the “papers of paradise“.

According to information on “paradise papers” Bono acted as “passive investor” in companies supposedly established in a tax haven to acquire two real estate projects in Lithuania and Germany. (November 11, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
