Disgraced Tory party donor Asil Nadir is back in Britain. He was the party’s largest individual donor during the 1980s.
Nadir fled the country in 1993 to avoid trial over 66 counts of fraud and false accounting. Now he believes conditions are right to show up in court.
And he’s not the only questionable donor.
Property developer David “Spotty” Rowland was appointed Tory Party treasurer in June, but resigned after queries over the origin of almost £3 million he had donated to the party.
Then there is Jon Wood, the kickboxing hedge fund boss nicknamed Keyser Soze. He donated £500,000.
Questions are being asked over his tax status. Companies House papers listed his country of residence as Switzerland, where he owns a £12.5 million chalet—while claiming to live in Surrey.
