Lusa - Business News - Angola: Isabel dos Santos denies transfers linked to family in wake of new leaks




Lisbon, Sept. 22, 2020 (Lusa) - Angolan businesswoman Isabel dos Santos has denied having made transfers associated with her family, after an investigation revealed that she and her husband had been the subject of reports of suspicious activities; she described the suggestion as "defamatory.
"Isabel dos Santos has never made transfers associated 'with her family', this allegation being false and defamatory," reads a statement sent on her behalf on Monday to Lusa, reacting to details released on Sunday of an investigation by the International Consortium of Research Journalists (ICIJ), of which Portuguese newspaper Expresso, owned by the Impresa group, is a partner. "Isabel dos Santos is an independent businesswoman, and there is no association between her business and her family.
"The entrepreneur only represents her own interests and those of no one else," it states.
According to the investigation, dos Santos, the daughter of José Eduardo dos Santos, a former president of Angola, "was the subject of two reports on suspicious activities in 2013 in the United States, one from JP Morgan and the other from Standard Chartered," due to "transfers linked to Unitel and the diamond business in which Sindika Dokolo [her husband] was a partner of the Angolan state."
According to Expresso, the report, which is dozens of pages long, was concluded on 16 October 2013 by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the US Treasury Departmebt.
"It is one of the two documents included in FinCEN Files that are related to Isabel dos Santos," Expresso relates. "An official from the compliance department of JP Morgan Chase Bank, in the United States, sent it the following day to FinCEN, the federal agency responsible for processing and forwarding suspicions about potential money laundering schemes for possible investigation by police authorities."
The note sent to Lusa on the businesswoman's behalf states that neither "Isabel dos Santos or her companies have never been clients of any US bank," saying that "it is completely false and defamatory that a US bank" has helped the businesswoman "in transfers associated with her family or the Angolan state." It notes that JP Morgan, "as the correspondent bank of BFA/BPI," makes requests for "regular compliance, requesting information on various transactions and from various clients of the bank," and argues that this to be an "absolutely normal" practice.
Although neither dos Santos nor her father were clients of JP Morgan, Expresso relates, "the report sent to FinCEN shows how JP Morgan had been indirectly involved, as a correspondent bank, in transfers related to the family and the Angolan state," and "there was one transfer in particular that caught the institution's attention: Sindika Dokolo, Isabel dos Santos' husband, had on 2 March 2012 sent $4 million to an account of a Dutch company, Melbourne Investments BV, which passed through a correspondent account of JP Morgan."
The note from the businesswoman downplays the investigation, dismissing it as a "scheme to launch news and suspicions to destroy Isabel dos Santos and her companies.
"The financial transactions reported in the journalistic articles are from 2013, that is, they occurred more than seven years ago," it points out. "This information is regurgitated and refined and is part of the defamatory campaign that continues to be fed by those who saw their illegitimate earnings in Sonangol cut off when Isabel dos Santos served as [president of the board of directors] from June 2016 to November 2017."
Dos Santos and her husband, it goes on, "are not part of any illegal and/or illegitimate scheme to circulate funds in the international or US banking system"; it rejects the "falsehoods and news that are regurgitated and without foundation."
The report, according to Expresso, lists 26 entities and people - including Isabel dos Santos, Sindika Dokolo and José Eduardo dos Santos - who could be related parties, including Portugal's Galp Energia, in which she long had an indirect stake.
"In all, the bank identified a total of $829 million in transfers between 2005 and 2013 related to the universe of these entities, but set aside the overwhelming majority of them and focused on reviewing only a few tens of millions," the Expresso article reads.
Movements made between 3 July 2006 and 2 March 2012 from accounts controlled by Dokolo to correspondent accounts of foreign banks at JP Morgan were identified.
The investigation involves more than 2,000 confidential bank documents - referred to as the FinCEN Files - obtained by BuzzFeed News and shared with ICIJ, which are said to reveal how some of the world's largest banks, including HSBC, have been used in fraud cases.
