Guernsey linked to Jahangir Hajiyev, and his wife, Zamira, and an Ascot golf course


Guernsey linked to Jahangir Hajiyev, and his wife, Zamira, and an Ascot golf course

In October 2018 Zamira Hajiyeva was identified as the first target for the UK's new anti-corruption law (UWO).

As part of this story was the purchase of the Mill Ride Golf & Country Club, a 170-acre course nestled in the verdant Berkshire countryside. The ownership of the golf club was routed through Guernsey in 2013 – see below.

On the 13th February 2020, the Guernsey Financial Intelligence Service [FIS] National Risk Assessment (NRA) provided some further information that shows that the administration by Trident Trust was not transferred until 2017.
Also, the slide below indicates there was more than just a golf course (£10m), there is a property in eastern Europe and British isles.

Interestingly the slide above says the case is still ongoing. What is not clear is whether this case is still open in both Guernsey and the UK or just the UK. However, It would seem that there are regulatory issues in Guernsey about the checks and balances on the Source of Wealth and funds.
