ISLAMABAD: The British Virgin Islands Financial Investigation Agency has confirmed to the Panamagate JIT that both the offshore companies, Nielsen and Nescoll, are owned by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Safdar.

The confirmation came in a letter sent to the JIT on July 3 by the agency’s director Errol George. The letter stated that the agency had written to the relevant quarters to answer a number of questions.

In response, Mossack Fonseca & Co Limited wrote back two separate letters on June 12, 2012 stating that the beneficial owner of the two companies is Maryam Safdar, and the company’s directors are Minerva Officer Limited and Corporate Officer Limited.

Mossack Fonseca further informed the agency that the two offshore companies, owned by Maryam Safdar, had loan accounts with a Deutsche Bank branch in Geneva, Switzerland.

In another letter, sent by Sara Potter, the Crown Counsel for the attorney-general’s office of the government of Virgin Islands asked the JIT head to update her about the conclusion of their proceedings.

The Express Tribune possesses all documentary correspondence in this regard.

The JIT report has also rejected the Sharif family’s stance that they owned their London flats in 2006. The JIT maintains that the family owns the flats since 1990s.
