Prosecutors press financial fraud case against Paul Manafort – Daily Mail

Paul Manafort directly denied he had any foreign accounts in a 2010 email to his long-time tax preparer – despite the fact that the former Trump campaign chairman had hired a team of tax preparers in Cyprus to file tax returns for him there, his fraud trial heard Friday. Philip Ayliff an accountant who had worked for Manafort since the 1990s, was told the millions of dollars from foreign companies pouring into Manafort’s accounts were from political consulting clients – when the money was actually from offshore shell companies controlled by the former Trump aide, according to testimony. Ayliff said he was not told about these Cyprus-based tax preparers, something he said he would have needed to know so that he could file a Foreign Bank Account Report for Manafort as required by U.S. law.
