Tredwell Marketing Ltd.

United Kingdom

Tredwell Marketing Ltd. is an offshore company based in the British Virgin Islands that was allegedly used in the tax fraud scheme uncovered by Russian anti-corruption lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who died in prison in 2009.

Tredwell was one of several businesses that allegedly funnelled money out of Russia to a chemical weapons factory controlled by the Syrian government, according to the online news site Asia Sentinel and an investigation by Buzzfeed.

In December 2007, Nixford Capital Corp., a company set up and controlled by the Troika Laundromat, sent US$133,427 to Tredwell. Nixford was itself the recipient of at least $49.8 million from four companies involved in the scheme Magnitsky uncovered.

In 2008, Tredwell also received 35,400 euros ($54,984) from Quantus Division Ltd., a core Troika Laundromat company, to purchase furniture.

Between 2007 and 2012, Tredwell took in a total of $4 million from multiple companies that held bank accounts at Lithuania’s now-shuttered Ukio Bankas.
