New Panama Papers Leak Includes Offshore Links To Lionel Messi, Cartier, Argentine Leader

Pin it

Two years after Panama Papers rocked the offshore world, new details have emerged about an array of global elite.

Reporters dis­cov­ered that Dariga Nazarbayeva, the daugh­ter of Kazakhstan pres­i­dent Nursultan Nazarbayev, was the sole share­hold­er of a British Virgin Islands com­pa­ny, infor­ma­tion not pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed.

Dariga Nazarbayeva, a for­mer deputy prime min­is­ter, is a sen­a­tor who heads the Kazakh Senate’s Committee of International Relations. Her polit­i­cal rise is viewed by some Central Asian pol­i­tics watch­ers as an indi­ca­tion she may one day replace her father.

In October 2007, Nazarbayev became a share­hold­er of Asterry Holdings Ltd., which held a stake in sug­ar fac­to­ries in Kazakhstan, via a chain of oth­er com­pa­nies, accord­ing to ICIJ media part­ner OCCRP.

Nazarbayeva did not respond to requests for com­ment.
