NETWORK OF MORE THAN 100 SHELL COMPANIES ALLEGEDLY LINKED TO MONEY LAUNDERING, BRIBERY AND DONALD TRUMP’S CONVICTED FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER, PAUL MANAFORT

OCCRP on 28 August reports a Buzz Feed story about 127 companies registered to the same few offices in London where employees claim they never heard of them and some of the companies accounts appear obviously bogus, BuzzFeed said.  The companies were established by others based offshore and controlled by businesspeople from the Ukraine, Russia and other post-Soviet countries. All of them bear the name of a dentist from Brussels who told BuzzFeed that he knows nothing about them but that he did sign some papers for some friends while he was living in Latvia.
