NEW INVESTIGATION: DUBAI PROPERTIES OF BELARUSIANS CLOSE TO LUKASHENKO

On 28 June, OCCRP reported on Belarusian PEP listed as owning real estate in Dubai, a kingdom in the UAE that has become a playground for the global rich.   Following on from the Dubai Uncovered report in May, further investigations have identified a similar group of politically exposed citizens of Belarus among the listed property owners.  They include Aliaksei Aleksin, a businessman sanctioned by the US and reputed to be Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko’s “wallet,” and others with ties to the regime in Minsk.  The investigation reveals that, even in a country whose government places a high priority on Soviet-style equality, people connected to the authorities can earn big money and offshore it to the UAE.
