Desk : A total of ten Bangladeshis including BNP Chairperson’s adviser Abdul Awal Mintoo have been named in the Paradise Papers, a fresh leak of financial documents revealing how the powerful and wealthy secretly invested vast amounts of money in offshore tax havens.

The Paradise Papers have named Awal – Nasreen Fatema, Awal – Tabith Md, Awal – Tafsir Mohammed, Chaudhury – Faisal, Mintoo – Abdul Awal, Mogul – Farida Y, Ullah – Shahid, Abdul Awal A Mintoo as Guardian for Tajwar Md. Awal, Ahmad – Sameer and Awal – Tajwar Muhammed in its list of offshore company holders.

An organization named Brummer & Partners Asset Management (Bangladesh) Limited has also been found.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on Friday published new data in the Offshore Leaks Database on close to 25,000 entities connected to the Paradise Papers investigation.


The Paradise Papers is a set of 13.4 million confidential electronic documents relating to offshore investments that were leaked to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The newspaper shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and a network of more than 380 journalists, and some of the details were made public on 5 November.

The documents originate from the offshore law firm Appleby, the corporate services providers Estera and Asiaciti Trust, and business registries in 19 tax jurisdictions.

They contain the names of more than 120,000 people and companies. Among those whose financial affairs are mentioned are, separately, Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II, President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos, and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.

At 1.4 terabytes in size, this is second only to the Panama Papers in 2016 as the biggest data leak in history.
