#PanamaPapers: Documents counter David Mark’s denial of secret assets in tax havens

A former President of the Nigerian Senate, David Mark, was not telling the truth when he denied knowledge of eight offshore companies linked to him as part of the ongoing #PanamaPapers revelations, a series of leaked documents has shown.

PREMIUM TIMES had on April 5 exposed Mr. Mark as operating shell companies in tax havens while being a public official in Nigeria, a violation of the country’s code of conduct law.

But shortly after the story broke, Mr. Mark denied owning any of the companies linked to him in the British Virgin Islands, a notorious tax haven, claiming this newspaper’s reporting was politically-motivated and calculated at tarnishing his image.

“We reiterate categorically that he is not directly or indirectly connected to any of the companies registered, operated or managed by the Mossack Fonseca Law Firm,” the lawmaker said through a statement by his spokesperson, Paul Mumeh. “We challenge all those behind this propaganda and media outburst to prove or show that Senator Mark’s name was mentioned in the leaks.”

In response to the lawmaker’s challenge, this newspaper is now making public documents that strongly established the links between him and the companies listed against his name in the Mossack Fonseca database.

The documents include a due diligence report submitted to Mossack Fonseca by Helms Trust Company, a Jersey based firm, a reference letter written by an associate of Mr. Mark to the Panamanian law firm authenticating his identity, a copy of Mr. Mark’s valid passport at the time, electricity bill receipt of the former senate president’s home in his native Otukpo as well as his official letterhead.

The due diligent report, dated June 12, 2014, categorised Mr. Mark as a politically exposed person (PEP) and identified him as the beneficial owner of the companies listed against his name. It also showed that the companies were active, at least as at June 2014.

The companies are Sikera Overseas S.A, Colsan Enterprises Limited, Goldwin Transworld Limited, Hartland Estates Limited, Marlin Holdings Limited, Medley Holdings Limited, Quetta Properties Limited, and Centenary Holdings Limited.

The other documents in Mr. Mark’s file with Mossack Fonseca were apparently sent by the lawmaker to the law firm as part of a Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance and identity verification process.

Although Mr. Mark is known within Mossack Fonseca as the beneficial owner of the companies, he used nominee directors for years to mask his relationship with the shell entities.

PREMIUM TIMES also found that one of the companies, Goldwin Transworld Limited is a shareholder in London-based Goldwin Services (UK) Limited, along with one Anne Folkard, a British citizen believed to be Mr. Mark’s long time associate and front.

Company documents in the U.K. show that Mr. Mark himself was a director in Goldwin Services (UK) Limited between October 3, 1994 and January 25, 1996, when he substituted himself with another shell company he had registered offshore, Goldwin Transworld Limited.

Ms. Folkard authored one of the documents in Mr. Mark’s file with Mossack Fonseca.

In 2010, apparently after Mossack Fonseca became suspicion about his business dealings, Mr. Mark sent documents across to the Panamanian firm through Ms. Folkard to convince the offshore provider of secrecy to continue to serve as his registered agents in Panama and the British Virgin Islands.

It is not immediately clear when Mr. Mark and Ms. Folkard met, but the letter sent to Mossack Fonseca by Ms. Folkard on behalf of the former Senate President indicated that they had been friends before 1994.

In the letter, dated October 20, 2010, Ms. Folkard wrote:

“You asked if I could confirm Senator David Mark’s address in Nigeria and I am happy to do this for you.

“Please find attached a copy of his senatorial headed paper which I had printed for him when he first became a Nigerian Senator in 1999. I can confirm that the address on the left-hand side of the page, 15 Asa Road, is his constituency address where he resides in Otukpo.

“I first visited that address back in 1994 and subsequently went there for the wedding of his oldest daughter, Caroline Mark, in 2001. If required, I have photos of the actual house. The traditional wedding and reception took place in his garden.

“I have also visited him at his official residence in Abuja. It is in the residential Apo Legislative complex in Abuja which is the residential area specifically built to house the Nigerian Senators when Nigeria became a democracy. The house that he lives in there is assigned with his senatorial job and as such he does not have the traditional bills that we would normally expect householders to have.”

When contacted Tuesday, Ms. Folkard told PREMIUM TIMES she was in a meeting, and unable to comment on businesses she run for Senator Mark.

While not all owners or operators of such offshore entities are criminals, owning or maintaining interest in private companies while serving as a public official is against Nigerian laws.

Section 6(b) of the Code of Conduct Act says a public office holder shall not, “except where he is not employed on full‐time basis, engage or participate in the management or running of any private business, profession or trade”.

Mossack Fonseca, reputed as one of the biggest providers of secrecy in the world, helped clients register offshore entities, some of which are then used to launder money, evade tax and dodge sanctions.

They also provide details of the hidden financial dealings of politicians and public officials around the world, including in Nigeria.

The trove of 11.5 million files shows how a global industry of law firms and big banks sells financial secrecy to politicians, fraudsters and drug traffickers as well as billionaires, celebrities and sports stars.

The revelations are among the findings of a lengthy investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and more than 100 other global news organizations – including PREMIUM TIMES.

PREMIUM TIMES is the only Nigerian publication involved in the investigation, which lasted a year.

  • dudu

    Thank you Premium Times. May your management continue to soar and please keep the flag flying. I shudder to think of what will become of Nigeria without platforms like Premium Times and Sahara Reporters. Imagine having to depend on only Nigerian mainstream newspapers for investigative news like this which would never have been unearthed till thy kingdom come.

  • F E R A N M I

  • Johnson

    You wonder why our Nigerian politicians/Pastor who have been exposed by this Panama Papers deny ownership of the accounts/companies. I think it is only in Nigeria this happens. Is lying a virtue to them? I mean, David Mark made his case worse by denying. Pls Mr Mark own up and approach the CCB to amend your filings. It is more honourable that way. You will be setting a good example for others to emulate.

  • OGK

    Lobatan!!! What does it want to say again? A severed head that is still whispering. I pity Paul Mumeh, Mark’s spokesperson over this uncoverable act by Mark. I congratulate the loser of the rerun of the senatorial election in Mark’s constituency as he now has a fresh platform to challenge the former Senate President’s claim and eligibility.

  • NwaIgbo

    This is investigative journalism par excellence!!! Million kudos to Premium Times for making Nigeria great. The robbers we harbor do not have any shame. They will tell you that 2+2 =44 and the expect us to believe them because these criminals to the nth degree will start to scream witch hunting, political enemies, vendetta and all sorts of garbage. This master lying criminal is back to the 8th senate- the law makers of Nigeria. God help us! What more is needed is to throw Mark out of the senate and bundle him to Kuje or Kirikiri for 30 years of hard labor. Sorry, our SAN and may be the Supreme Court will not allow that as Mark will marshal 100 senators to march behind him in solidarity. Our consolation is God in Heaven cannot be bribed and we the people know the truth.

  • Paul Young

    Chai!!! This one is incontrovertible evidence. Mr Mark over to you

    • Gbola

      Trust me,
      David Mark would deny that the picture in that Passport is his dead twin brother and not him.

      In fact,
      He would claim that someone else acted as an impostor faking his details.

      The Man is a born Criminal.
      HE WOULD NEVER EVER ADMIT ANYTHING.

    The Nigerian Politician will deny you and tell lies….even as you are looking at him and seeing his hand in the “cookie jar”. Payday is coming for everyone of them and David Mark has his at hand.

    • Dazmillion

      real Mark of the beast

  • Christopher Aghalibe

    Mr Mark, you threw the challenge and you have been dared. Go ahead and deny all these and sue Premium Times. If you don’t, any shred of credibility, you feel that you have, will just evaporate. Although, I am sure that as a typical shameless Nigerian politician, you will pretend that nothing happened and true to type, before long nobody will remember this again and it will be business as usual.

  • utolason

    At half time, Premium Times 4, David Mark 0. In the second half David Mark has to make some serious changes to his team. As it stands now, it is an uphill task for him. The second half is about to kick off and we just have to wait to see what the referee (Mr Buhari) and the linesmen (EFCC and CCB) can do to manipulate him out of the mess.

  • Rommel

    As the corporate media around the globe including Nigeria, led by Premium Times among other Satanic media houses sponsored by the CIA forcefully helps to spread and sow the seed of confusion on stories from the fake Panama Papers leak, nobody has yet reported on the fact that the organisation behind the leak – the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) of which Premium Times is member–is funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and the CIA.
    According to CNN, “ICIJ [International Consortium of Investigative Journalists] and an international coalition of media outlets that allegedly investigated the trove of papers, which revealed a clandestine network involving associates of global world leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin, and his business ties between a member of FIFA’s [Fédération Internationale de Football Association] ethics committee and men whom the United States has indicted for corruption” it becomes clearer daily that most of the leaks were sponsored by the CIA.
    Yet many media establishment around the globe, have not bothered to investigate the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the organization behind the leak who are currently working for the Interest of the USA and the Jewish state-of Israel.
    A trip to its web page reveals its support and funding sources: the Open Society Foundations (a George Soros outfit), the Ford Foundation and a host of other foundations. Soros’ anti-Russian obsession is well-known. Less well-known is the fact the Ford Foundation is connected to the CIA and has specialized in international cultural propaganda since the end of the Second World War in Europe and Africa. But the question that most Nigerians are expected to ask is why the involvement of Premium Times in a CIA funded project? These are some of the media outfits under the direct payroll of foreign interest in Africa—–When we said the Buhari election was funded by the CIA some disgrunbtled regionalist in Nigeria, said it was a lie. Premium Times heléped to champion the fight against Jonathan. They helped the CIA sack the government of Jonathan——Aware the under–development of africa and the wars in the continent—are often caused by greedy African leader who unlike Jonathan refused to hand over power-after their sponsored defeat by the CIA.————Separation is the answer—Not the rule of the Fulanis and Yoruba traitors-in APC

    • Chukwuka Okoroafor

      You must know that the people involved in bringing down Jonathan have had their identities leaked as well. So your theory of Jonathan being targeted by the CIA while Premium Times is involved with a CIA project is weak. Also, you call for the break up of Nigeria, yet this is precisely what some in the CIA want more than anything in Africa. Maybe you are working for them at the same time. Who knows.

  • No Bull …..

    DAVID should be MARKed by EFCC for probe !

  • llamba

    The focus of we, the few Nigerians that care, should now be on President Buhari’s inaction. He promised to fight corruption, but now all these revelations are being made,and he pretends he hasn’t heard. If you ask Buhari now what he will do about this he will say he is allowing due process, and it is not his job to arrest criminals. No hope at all for Nigeria.

  • Dazmillion

    Of course Mark will deny the documents and even swear on his mother. That is to be expected. The real problem lies with the government agencies like CCT and ICPC who would not follow up and charge the criminal to court. Saharreporters exposed Dino for operating a US account, not a word from CCT, ICPC.

    That is where the problem lies, politically corrupted corruption agencies.

    • New Nigerian

      EFCC already made a release that they’d follow up on Panama Papers revelations

Now, how about updating us on all the names of Nigerians on the list that you have seen, that would shed more light and broaden our views of these corrupt individuals… instead of this piecemeal tidbits.

    ICIJ is funded and organized by the Center for Public Integrity (CPI), a liberal “watchdog” group famous for portraying Patrick J. Buchanan as a white supremacy supporter during the 1996 presidential race. Murray notes CPI is funded by a raft of globalist interests, including the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Endowment, the Rockefeller Family Fund and the Open Society Foundation.

    “The corporate media—the Guardian and BBC in the UK—have exclusive access to the database which you and I cannot see. They are protecting themselves from even seeing western corporations’ sensitive information by only looking at those documents which are brought up by specific searches such as UN sanctions busters. Never forget the Guardian smashed its copies of the Snowden files on the instruction of MI6,” writes Murray.

    ICIJ and CPI are attempting to hijack investigative journalism and trade on the notoriety of Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks to take down Putin and Bashar al-Assad, the embattled leader of Syria among other Africa leaders.

    The Panama Papers expose offshore tax havens in Switzerland, the Bahamas, Grand Cayman, and Panama, but says nothing about a new arrangement legalized under FATCA, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.

    The law “makes the parking of dirty US money abroad practically impossible. So where does that money go instead—it stays in the US,” writes Zero Hedge. “And, to top it off, there is one specific firm which is spearheading the conversion of the U.S. into Panama: Rothschild.”

    The international bankster institution opened a trust company in Reno, Nevada. “It is now moving the fortunes of wealthy foreign clients out of offshore havens such as Bermuda, subject to the new international disclosure requirements, and into Rothschild-run trusts in Nevada, which are exempt,” Bloomberg reports. The United States “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world,” boasted Andrew Penny of Rothschild. One of the world’s largest providers of offshore accounts, Trident Trust, opened an office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota without the preying eyes of the CIA. unquote– SO HOW DID PREMIUM TIMES BECOME A MEMBERS OF THIS EVIL SYNDICATE IN AFRICA WITH SHARIA REPORTERS?-

Remember that it is those individuals who are sponsoring these terrorists (not to absolve blame from those herdsmen). Perhaps when you figure that out (I am not sure if you are smart or moral enough to do that) then perhaps we can talk to each other in a more respectful way.

      PANAMA PAPERS: The secrets of dirty money by Süddeutsche Zeitung

      Syria and the Greater Israel Project

      Of course, when recent headlines on Syria have read: Putin Goes Ballistic In Syria, Obliterates The USA’s Secret ‘Mideast Strategy’, it’s easy to understand why they incessantly act with such a vengeance toward Putin and his Kremlin clan. After all, the subtitle of that same article reads: Putin’s Russia Blows Up Scheme For ‘Greater Israel’. And no one messes with their insane Greater Israel Project and gets away with it.

      The Zio-Anglo-American criminal cabal will never leave Putin alone until he is driven out of office and without an iota of political power left. After the overwhelming Russian military success in Syria, they (AAA leadership )are not only livid with rage, but also totally beside themselves with revenge. That’s where the highly trumpeted “Panama Papers” comes in.

      In reality, there is nothing there with which to impugn Putin’s integrity. However, they draw lines of association all over the place in order to connect him with the several crime scenes related to the operations of Mossack Fonseca. Whoever wrote this global exposé worked harder than ever to throw dots up on the radar screen in order to create a fictitious crime scene where it concerns Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

      What follows are a few other articles which have been written by some very credible alternative news outlets. These are then used to lend credence to the MSM storyline. Yes, most certainly there are many elements in this Mossack Fonseca crime spree which are entirely true. However, that’s how they always rope you into their pen of profound prevarication and subtle sophistry. Once they disseminate a few truths which can be verified easily, then they hit you with an all-out propaganda $hit-storm.Unquote Yet a Nigerian newspaper outfit foolisly allows itself to be used by the CIA-to do their dirty work in the country–what a shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • IZON Redeemer

    Not only was The Guardian conscripted to do the dirty work on the Panama Paper leak, a heavily CIA-connected German newspaper was actually contracted by The Company (aka the CIA) to do all the heavy lifting. Just who is Süddeutsche Zeitung? As follows:

    On 6 October 1945, five months after the end of World War II in Germany, the SZ [Süddeutsche Zeitung] was the first newspaper to receive a license from the U.S. military administration of Bavaria. The first issue was published the same evening. The first article begins with:

    For the first time since the collapse of the brown rule of terror, a newspaper run by Germans is published in Munich. It is limited by the political necessities of our days, but it is not bound by censorship, nor gagged by constraints of conscience.

    (Source: Süddeutsche Zeitung)

    It should now be quite obvious that Süddeutsche Zeitung is nothing but a mouthpiece for their Anglo-American overlords. Yes, the true chain of command goes way higher than just London and Washington, D.C. However, the scope of this exposé is to merely reveal how the AAA is relentlessly used to pose a countervailing force to Russian independence. The real mission is to keep Russia amd countries in Africa on the NWO reservation and forever tethered to the International Crime Syndicate now known simply as the “Banksters”.

      You are flaming on the messengers huh! Are you David mark? Wy so much vitriol on the truth being exposed for all to see..you should rather commend PT for doing a great job in the service of democracy – CIA? hmm, did you hear about watergate scandal? It was a journalist that wrote about it, leading to the resignation of a sitting President of the USA – not CIA or FBI. Being in pursuit of truth to serve the interest of the masses is extremely powerful and this is a sure sign that Nigerian democracy is maturing.

    And to think that this imbecile became senate president of my country makes my heart bleed. It can only take a long while, eventually the stammerer will complete the utterance of the word Baba. This animal will be destroyed here on earth and indeed in heaven. Just watch.

  • wazobia scatter!!!!!!

    PT is doing a marvelous job here, please keep it up – it is funny how David Mark who held Jonathan to ransom through ballooning the national assembly budget from N12billion to N150billion – all in envelope budgeting, which in Nigeria speak is just saying once they pass the budget they just collect the money from the treasury and spend as they like – is now being exposed before the entire world for the crook he is. This shameless man claimed to be a Northerner and he superintended as the head of the legislative arm of government killing 36,000+ of his fellow northerners, over 2 million others ethnically-cleansed into the camps, while he was busy hiding whatever he could hide from the commonwealth offshore accounts and assets that he thought would never be revealed – while lying through his teeth, holding congressional prayer meetings, chairing the “praying legislators”…this exposure is a total rejection of this hypocrisy by God….and a rejection of his continued fight to roll back the gains of killing corruption before it kills Nigeria that he is waging through Saraki – the stooge he installed at the Senate so that all his shady dealings thee would not unravel. EFCC should of course do the needful and recover whatever was stolen from the commonwealth and prosecute whatever crime David Mark committed to the furthest extent of the law.

    Top news paper and you remain a perfect example for the rest news paper to emulate. EFCC the main job has been done for you.

    • sojdson

      I hope some Nigerians will not call it witch-hunt or persecution of perceived opponents

  • Maverick

    Here in the third world ,denial of corruption by so -called leaders is endemic even when caught red -handed. In saner climes,the leaders simply resign to save their names and their country from further embarrassment .Even Bukola who is currently facing false assets declaration charges with CCT dismissed this expose by the Panama Papers with a wave of the hand as if it does not matter.It is left for the EFCC to institute a high -powered probe into all Nigerian names on the list and charge them accordingly.

  • Good job PT.
