Pandora Papers Highlights: In part 5 of the Pandora papers investigation, we take a look at the offshore footprints of India-born Singapore billionaire Arvind Tiku who was ranked by Forbes in 2021 as the 18th richest in Singapore with a net worth of $2.2 billion.
Tiku is not just another businessman. His business associates include LN Mittal, chairman of the world’s largest steel and metal company, ArcelorMittal, and Timur Kulibaev, son-in-law of former President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev.
