Egrant Inc: hiding in plain sight

Published: April 15, 2017 at 11:36am

Easter is not a good time for the Prime Minister, his chief of staff and Konrad Mizzi. By yet another series of serendipitous flukes, this website has discovered who owns the third company in Panama, Egrant Inc – which was, incidentally, put into dissolution a few days ago, indicating that another company may have been set up to replace it.

This website also has information on several movements of very large sums of money from the bank account of a company owned by politically exposed persons (PEPs) in Azerbaijan to bank accounts held by Egrant Inc, Hearnville Inc (ultimate beneficial owner: Konrad Mizzi, the Minister Within The Office of the Prime Minister) and Tillgate Inc (UBO: Keith Schembri, the Prime Minister’s chief of staff).

A Maltese bank, set up after 2013, was used to move the money.

The full story will be reported next week, because several people who are unreachable over the Easter weekend have still to be contacted for comment.
