BANK RECORDS LINK ALLEGEDLY PRESIDENT OF CYPRUS TO ‘TROIKA LAUNDROMAT’

On 14th August, an article from the OCCRP contained allegations that a law firm he established and co-owned – Nicos Chr. Anastasiades and Partners LLC, and in which he was a partner at the time, was arranging business deals linked to a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the infamous Magnitsky scandal, and a network of companies used in various financial crimes.  He stepped down from the firm when he became President in 2013, but both of his daughters are partners, and he still has a private office in the firm’s building.  The article claims that links have been found that reveal the law firm’s work executing complex deals that moved Russian money to and from shell companies created by and associated with the firm.
