He picked up some VERY interesting points by scrutinising the documents...as Marr should have done.
C) that email contained an instruction
“Redact the reference for Ural Properties and any references which include sensitive information eg the account numbers that the money was sent from”.
I haven’t heard of that company before.
Sounds Russian connected
D/. There is an Ural Properties is based in Gibraltar where Banks has some of his companies including Southern Rock Insurance Co Ltd that was teetering on insolvency in 2015 & had to be recapitalised to the tune of £77 million. (Where did that come from?)
The STM group was owned and run by a close associate of Banks, Alan Kentish, who was arrested by Gibraltar Police last year and had to resign his Directorships
It also mentions his links to Banks and STM’s important assistance in The Southern Rock emergency bail out.
F/ Meanwhile a Guardian article suggests that Banks had substantial shareholding’s in STM at some stage.
Banks PRI Holdings got a mention in the Panama Papers as one of Banks Companies along with Precision Risk & Intelligence Ltd (Directors linked to American Senate Inquiry)
The wife of Alan Kentish ex Director of STM, who is under investigation by Gibraltar Police
H/ the accountant & John Sweeney looked at the accounts of Better for the Country & Leave EU, 2 companies of which Banks is a Director & shareholder.
The accountant suggested that Better for the Country supplied services to Leave EU appeared to mark up staff costs 50-75%
Where did all the money come from?
£77million for Southern Rock bail out
However tonight @BBCNewsnight and @johnsweeneyroar have done a decent job at following through on the evidence in the documents Banks provided to #Marr 👏
