Here in the UK, most of us know that in countries around the world with high levels of corruption, the powerful often steal public money and keep it for themselves. What we know less about is where the money ends up…

ORIGINS THE The origins


At the expense of their country's people, corrupt individuals help themselves to public funds or money made from illegal activities such as drugs or crime.

Offshore havens, such as British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies, are often favoured by the corrupt due to secretive legal systems created to mask identities.

When the money reaches British soil, the corrupt need UK professionals such as lawyers and estate agents to smoothly pass the money along, each time further masking its source.

As the corrupt make a house a home for their illicit wealth, particularly in London, ordinary people struggle to rent or buy property and local businesses decline.

UK property is giving the global corrupt a home for their ill-gotten gains. This has got to stop for the good of citizens at home and abroad.

What you can do to help

Join us and call on Eric Pickles MP (UK Anti-Corruption Champion) to establish transparency over who owns the companies that own so much property in our country. Overseas investment itself isn't bad — but money intended for schools and hospitals overseas being spent on a Mayfair mansion is. And amidst the UK housing crisis, the public deserve to know who really owns Britain.
