King David of the Isle of Man Appoints Career Diplomat Matthew Greene as Manx Prince & Ambassador
Backed by a UN law firm, King David of the Isle of Man appointed career diplomat Matthew Greene, an ethnically Russian 15 year national security veteran, and former independent advisor to the Presidential Administration of Vladimir Putin, as Prince and Ambassador of the Manx Royal House. Depending upon how Ambassador Matthew Greene will be received by the Manx government, the Isle of Man stands to gain – or lose – billions in deposits of its offshore banking sector from Russian depositors.
PR Log - Mar 27, 2013 - King David of the Isle of Man (part of the United Kingdom) has appointed the decorated veteran, career diplomat and historian Prof. Dr. Matthew B. Greene as the Prince and Ambassador of the Royal House of the Kingdom of the Isle of Man, assigned to manage sovereign relations and cooperation with the Manx government and Queen Elizabeth II of the British Crown.
The Royal House hopes that Ambassador Matthew Greene will be well received by the Isle of Man government, considering that he culturally represents and potentially influences Russian and Eastern European depositors, and the billions they have invested in the Manx offshore banking sector. The appointment was intended to offer an opportunity of significant support to the Manx government.
A United Nations NGO international law centre and geopolitics institute, the Institute for Sovereign International Security (ISIS), completed verification of the credentials and qualifications of Matthew Greene on 04 February 2013, approving him to King David of Mann, from among a pool of 9 top candidates. The approval marked the completion of a multi-year search and several-month selection process by the Royal House of the Isle of Man. King David issued the royal status and title of office under UK constitutional monarchy law and Anglican ecclesiastical Canon law, by a traditional UK legal instrument called “Letters Patent” on 07 March 2013.
Ambassador Prince Matthew Greene is a highly decorated 15-year national security veteran and independent Presidential Advisor, usually indirectly, to various country leaders including Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation. He is an international lawyer with decades of experience as a Special Envoy and Legal Attaché for governments.
He holds 2 Masters Degrees and 4 Doctorate degrees, including a Professorship Doctorate in international law, and a Doctorate in international diplomacy. As an internationally renowned expert and scholar in multiple academic disciplines, he is widely recognized as an authority in all of his spheres of professional expertise. He is an Honorary Member of the prestigious Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RANS).
Prince Matthew Greene is also a recognized ecclesiastical scholar, expert in ancient and medieval history, and archeologist, holding a Doctorate in Archaeology and Egyptology, with decades of experience working with Church institutions, universities and museums on many historical preservation projects.
By Russian dynastic nobility peerage, Prince Matthew is a double hereditary Cossack General, both from his father’s and mother’s paternal lines, and a hereditary Honor Guard of the Tsar’s Palace from his father’s maternal line, and thus the descendant of noble warriors and security advisors to Eastern European royalty. Both his interest in history, and his years in the Russian security services, are a reflection of this family background.
In the wake of the Cyprus banking crisis of March 2013, experts estimate that Russian interests are over 30% of offshore banking deposits worldwide, with over $31 billion in Cyprus alone. As reported by CNBC, an estimated $2 billion of Russian money suddenly withdrawn from Cyprus in reaction to the crisis might be available to the Isle of Man. According to figures derived from Global Tax News, the Isle of Man currently has approximately 12% Russian depositors representing over $8.0 billion of its existing deposits.
With the strong ethnic Russian family roots and Russian security services background of Ambassador Prince Matthew Greene of the Manx Royal House, Russian depositors may be greatly influenced by whether he himself uses Isle of Man banking, his expert opinions, and how he is treated by the Manx government.
According to a spokesperson for the UN law center institution ISIS: “The Isle of Man can potentially be greatly affected by how well it receives and cooperates with Ambassador Greene. The Isle of Man banking sector stands to gain over $2.0 billion, or potentially lose up to $8.0 billion, depending on its reception of the new Ambassador for King David.”
