Moonis Elahi among owners of secret firms in British Virgin Islands

Scion of the Chaudhries of Gujrat, Moonis Elahi’s name appeared on Thursday among a list of fresh names of owners of secret offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands, The Guardian reported on Thursday.

Moonis Elahi was named as the owner of an offshore company, Olive Grove Assets Ltd. The company was incorporated in the BVI 2006, and the address listed in BVI records is the Chaudry family’s residence in Lahore. Elahi was acquitted in a Pakistan court in 2011 of receiving payments in a corruption scandal.

Refuting the claims, Moonis said, “I do not own” nor control the BVI company.

The latest cluster of names to emerge from the huge leak of BVI financial data include Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili and prominent figures of India, Thailand and Indonesia. They also include a Briton, Neil Gaitely, nominally a director of a company reported to be a front for the Iranian regime.

    Another theft alligation, Robery….., He shouldn't be allowed to participate in elections untill he get clearance from all judgements.?

    • Bilal Waheed said:

      Mahmood sb i think he was already cleared by the honorable court in NICL case and i dont thing he is questioned in any other case. As far as above story is concerned, i think let the time prove it as fact before we all say something.

    • Bilal Waheed said:

      I think he is the bravest of three young politicians we have and i believe that he would not deny it if he owns as described in above story……….

    It is another false campaign against Moonis Elahi. We can understand why this news is published during the election days. No proof is published that he really own this company. It is a lie and this news will die soon because it does not have any authenticity.

      So the British newspaper "The Guardian" is indulding in a false campaign against Moonis Elahi? What does "The Guardian" has to achieve from accusing (dis) honorable Moonis Elahi. The guy is a cheat already convicted by the court. Lets leave it to that.

  3. Mashud Ali said:

    @Cobra Commander first of all he is not convicted from for your kind information. He was honorably acquitted from the case. You will soon know who has used his links with the newspaper and writer to publish this story. Wait and see.

    • Cobra Commander said:

      NICL case is still in the courts. Moonis Elahi is still in the docks and no wat honorably acquitted. I wonder what does the Georgian president and the rest of the people who showed up in the report have to say about that. Maybe they will use the same excuse " You will soon know who has used his links with the newspaper to publish this story". Some how a Pakistani person is able to influence a European journalist, thats hard to believe.

      • Salahuddin said:

        NICL case is still in court, but was his name announced anywhere two days back when pple like Makhdoom Amin Faheem were issued arrest warrants? God Bless Ch. Monas Elahi. a true leader in all aspects.

  4. Muhammad Azam said:

    I agree that NICL icase s still in the courts but there is no link of Moonis Elahi with this case. He was acquitted on October 2011. About influencing the European journalist, you must check when the story of Nawaz Sharif's corruption was aired and published while he was the Prime Minister of the country then who influenced the BBC and the story writer.
    It is an old practice in this country.

      Plus Journalist, whereever they may be, do need "lafafa's" . We can find all sort of pple in every corner of this World.

    If it doesn't include companies of sharifs and bhuttos then this is highly skewed and biased report by omitting those crooks

  9. Bilal Ahmed said:

    And now new scam stories has started in a sheer frustration as the editor couldnt find any proof against Moonis Elahi in the ownership of this ofshore Co. Also there is no need for him to hide his assets as he already had declared his assets before signing up for coming elections.

  10. Nida said:

    There is no proof as to thbe ownership of Moonis Elahi of offshore company in UK. This is just a false campaign. You're just like a couple of race mongers using race card because you just want to put mud on influential persons ansd without proof. That news is no more or less a lie than any other political ad this year.if it works they don't care if it is a lie – the same as with Moonis Elahi!

  11. Zainab said:

    Just a pitiful excuse to throw stones at influential personalities. Facts annoy and confuse teabaggers. It's easier for them to repeat the faux noise than to do any critical thinking and/or research themselves. There is no proof of names of owners of secret offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands, The writer is more like a drunk, imcredibly ignorant or both? Either way, he either have a short memory or you're just in extreme denial!

    • Emancipation said:

      Influential personalities???………. my foot!!! What has he done for the nation which makes you worship this corrupt loser?? why do you need a proof…..!!! For God sake stop supporting leaders like him. He has sucked the blood of this poor nation and fled. Talk some sense and say no to these corrupt hounds!

    How much longer do our people have to suffer this crap? Why can’t we make an example of this kid, who always regarded and respect for our laws or country? The saddest part is – if peoiple alike Nawaz Shareef let go now, then one day they will be in a position of power to create more corruption and put our Country diginity on risk.

    For the critics of this decision! First you were the critics of Moonis Elahi and were very supportive to judiciary and now when judiciary released Moonis Elahi after a fair trial you turn to the critics of Judiciary. For God sake stay at one side. Moonis Elahi faced the trial and no other politicians have such guts. Ask Nawaz brothers, did they have such guts to face trials. Well how could they if Election Commission has some issues on thier submitted papers considering them incompetent to be elecetd.

  17. Emancipation said:

    What kind of people are you who are supporters of this crook. Everybody knows he is a bloody criminal and looted national wealth. I dont understand why people of Pakistan support these losers. His father supported the Gov of Zardari just to bail Moonis out. Are you people blind….!! He should be hanged with looters like Zardari, NRO makers like Musharraf !

    Daaku ka beta Daaku !

    Chaudhry Pervez Elahi did corruption during his tenure under dictator Mush. He used front men to loot Bank of Punjab and the case is still pending in the Supreme Court.

    Chaudhry Moonis Elahi, following his father's footsteps used front men to loot NICL…. To save chhota Daaku from FIA investigations, PML-Q immediately joined PPP govt and the investigations were subverted when the Investigating Officer was fraudulently transferred to Gilgit-Baltistan. They have fraudulently closed the case.

    InshaAllah every single penny will be recovered from these Daakus!

  19. Saima Sohail said:

    Now it is clear why Chaudhry Pervez Elahi announced in 2006 "to elect General Musharraf 10 times in uniform"??
    Then he jumped into PPP about whom they used to call "Lutto Te Phutto".
    To protect the ill-gotten wealth !

  20. Fakhru Bhai said:

    What is the source of this wealth?
    How much tax did he or his father pay?
    Why did he open an off-shore account?
    Did he or his father disclose this wealth in the election nomination forms??
    If they have not disclosed it, then they must be Disqualified under articles 62 & 63.

    It is not a crime or corruption to form a firm in Cyprus, Malta or Maldives. It is because of tax exemptions..

  22. Paul Steven said:

    What is the problem? A offshore company in UAE, Delaware, BVI, Seychelles is fully legal.

    Cyprus is not offshore, it´s lowtax in european union.
