The Names of Russian Magnates who Keep Money in the British Offshore Companies can be Revealed

The names of Russian magnates who keep money in the British offshore companies - on the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands - can be revealed.

The members of the British Parliament are going to vote for the adoption of the relevant law, as The Times reports. It is noted that so far the British offshore territories have been exempt from the current country’s requirement to disclose the identities of the owners of assets held under their jurisdiction.

According to the British lawmakers, this makes money laundering possible, which, in turn, contributes to the growth of crime and corruption.

One of the members of the Conservative Party, Andrew Mitchell, reported that the vote in parliament was scheduled for May 2. According to him, the main goal of the new law is to make sure that “the British flag does not hide dirty money spent on bad things anywhere in the world”. On April 25 the Federal Service for Financial Monitoring reported that Russian officials, including governors, deputies, and even heads of executive bodies at various levels, withdrew billions of roubles to offshore companies. However, no specific names were disclosed.
