As per report an email sent by a confidante of Nithyananda to a person who sought details regarding payment for a puja asks disciples to deposit money in a bank account based out of the Republic of Vanuatu. Meanwhile it is pertinent to note that the island has a global reputation for being a tax haven with no corporate or personal taxes. Perhaps the country in the south Pacific Ocean is neighboured by fiji, the solomon islands, and New Guinea. It also has banking secrecy laws, providing confidentiality to clients which makes it more attractive as a tax haven.
Furthermore the mail provides an account number for 'Kailaasa Limited' in the Port Vila branch of the National bank of vanuatu, the largest bank in the country. Port Vila is the capital of Vanuatu. Significantly, however, the remitting address is listed as 'Kailaasa Limited', about two minutes away from the National bank of vanuatu on Kumul Highway. Currently even as speculation has been mounting regarding the whereabouts of the godman, the Union home Ministry recently asked the karnataka government to consider steps to secure a Red Corner Notice against him.
Perhaps this month, a blue corner notice was issued by Interpol based on gujarat police's request. Moreover south American country ecuador recently denied having given asylum to Nithyananda and suggested that he may have fled to Haiti. However the godman continues to make regular appearances in videos on his social media accounts. Recently, his purported 'nation' of 'Kailaasa' created a furore when the ashram invited applications for the setting up of a country by 'dispossessed hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice hinduism authentically in their own countries'.
