The oligarch Ahmed Demir Dogan He’s in a hurry to part with luxury assets. He is looking for a buyer for his 39-meter Yacht “Agatha
“. The luxury vessel is priced at 5.9 million euros by two brokerage companies: Worth Avenue Yachts and Imperial Yachts, both based in Monaco. This is understood by
on Intelligence Online, a specialized site for information related to the intelligence community.
Imperial Yachts, run by Yevgeny Borisovich Kochman, was placed on the sanctions list of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) for its alleged links to yachts linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s cronies, as well as Igor Sechin and Gennady Timchenko.
Ahmed Dogan He appears to be trying to get ahead of any actions that Bulgarian justice or the US administration could take against him. The publication boasts good sources, but in the facts it presents there are some inaccuracies.
The Rings of Companies
Ahmed Dogan, who has a doctorate in philosophy, worked as a state security agent under the pseudonyms “Angelov“, “Sergei” and “Sava“. Between 1986 and 1989 he was imprisoned. Then in 1990 he founded the political party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF). In 2013, he was also the target of an attack.
In Bulgaria Ahmed Dogan
through the company “Sigda
” Ltd. is the owner “TPP Varna
and Varna, which Papazov managed between 2001 and 2013. Through TPP Varna he is also a shareholder in the security “Electric Security
The newspaper also recalls the scandal with the fee of 1 million. Lv. for hydrological consulting services, given to Dogan by a company related to “Minstroy Holding” of Nikolay Valkanov. But the amount indicated in the publication is inflated a hundredfold – 770m euros. Dollars.
Now Ahmed Dogan may be trying to speed up the sale of his assets. Documents leaked by the Pandora Papers of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists describe detailed links between the 68-year-old Dogan and IGWT Limited. The company is based in the Ajman Free Zone in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
However, this information is not correct. IGWT Limited is the parent company of Peevski’s hidden offshore companies, which highlighted the Pandora Papers investigation, in which the Bulgarian partner is BIRD.BG. The documents of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists ICIJ do not include Ahmed Dogan at all. The Intelligence Online site is not among the consortium’s partners and does not have access to the original documents.
Over the years, Dogan has been informally associated with many other companies, mansions and hotels. The most famous of these was the mansion inhabited by him and became known as “Dogansaray” in Rosenets, which is owned by the company “Hermes Solar
“” Ltd. It is “Dogansaray” that has a yacht pier, which was built illegally.
The Agatha Yacht
on Imperial Yachts reveal the luxury of the interior and drawings of the 3 levels of the yacht “Agatha”. A according to Advert for sale on Worth Avenue Yachts, the yacht is under the Bulgarian flag. According to MarineTraffic, the yacht is under the Maltese flag.
According to BRRD, the owner of the yacht is not Dogan himself, but his right hand Rumen Gaitanski – The Wolf. The registered owner and operator of the yacht is the company “East Line Ship Management” AD, which has been deleted. The actual owner of this company is Metodi Antonov Prodanov. He is also the manager of the company “Brook Konstrakshan”, owned by Rumen Gaitanski – The Wolf.
Shortly after publication, the yacht left the Greek port of Perama and headed to another Greek port – Porto Karas. The vessel is currently in the Aegean, according to MarineTraffic.
