Lithuanian Mayor Invites Bono to Visit Shopping Mall

VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — A mayor in northeastern Lithuania has invited U2 frontman Bono to visit the shopping mall in Lithuania that he allegedly owns part of due to low-tax Malta investments whose documents were recently leaked.

Utena mayor Alvydas Katinas says he has written to the Irish rocker to see the Ausra shopping center, which sits 95 kilometers (59 miles) north of Vilnius, the capital.

Katinas said Thursday that Bono, who has never visited Lithuania before, also could help make the Lithuanian town better known to the world.

He said he also wanted to congratulate Bono for winning the Global Icon Award that U2 received Sunday at the MTV Europe Music Awards in London.

The so-called Paradise Papers leaks have detailed widespread tax dodging by multinationals and wealthy individuals.
