#PanamaPapers: My hands are clean - David Mark

08 April 2016, 13:13

Abuja - Former Senate President, David Mark, has denied report that he owned eight offshore companies in the Caribbean after being named in the Panama Papers leak.

Mark in a statement signed by his media assistant, Paul Mumeh, lamented that his hands are clean and that the inclusion of his name was “an attempt to blackmail and tarnish his hard earned image by some political elements.”

According to the statement, contrary to what was reported in the media, his name “is not listed anywhere in the database of Mossack Fonseca Law Firm. We reiterate categorically, that he is not directly or indirectly connected to any of the companies registered, operated or managed by the Mossack Fonseca Law Firm.

“We challenge all those behind this propaganda and media outburst to prove or show that Mark’s name was mentioned in the leaks. He is prepared to stand and defend himself against any accusation in relation to this matter.”

Mark stressed that searches carried out on “the Mossack Fonseca database found no statement, item or any connection to Senator David Mark or his family. It follows that there is no record whatsoever of any impropriety or wrongdoing.”

The senator recalled that in his quest for senate presidency in 2007, there was an attempt to bring a similar issue to the fore in order to stop him.
