Money from ‘world’s biggest bribe scandal’ invested in UK property

Leak appears to show at least £7.5m of Unaoil proceeds were laundered via offshore firms

They are the British-Iranian family behind what has been called the “world’s biggest bribe scandal”.

For 17 years, Cyrus Ahsani and his brother Saman Ahsani worked as fixers for multinationals such as Rolls-Royce, bribing officials in Algeria, Angola, Azerbaijan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Libya and Syria.

 

 

 

 

Now the Guardian has seen leaked documents that suggest how proceeds made from the family’s firm, Unaoil, were laundered through an intricate chain of offshore companies that secretly helped fund the acquisition of a string of UK properties.

 

 

 

 

 

The Pandora papers, a huge leak of confidential offshore records shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists with the Guardian and other media partners around the world, contains a cache of documents that appears to show how at least £7.5m of Unaoil proceeds were funnelled via offshore companies into investment funds and blended with funds from outside investors
