Since, according to a news report, Nexia BT’s Brian Tonna claimed he is “sole owner” of Egrant one can remind him of an e-mail, dated March 25, 2013, sent by his partner, Karl Cini, to Luis Quiel of Mossack Fonseca (Panama) in which the following was stated: “I presume the information and documents you sent me relate to the set-up of the new company in Panama and for the trust. We will prepare the requested information but the ultimate beneficial owner will not be Nexia BT. It will be an individual and I will speak to Luis Quiel on skype to give him more details.”

In view of the above, it seems that both Cini and Tonna intended to give the lie to themselves.
