 Russian billionaire Rashid Sardarov, who bought large tracts of land in Namibia, is among the long−serving clients of Mossack Fonseca, a disgraced law firm known for aiding the rich to hide their wealth in tax havens.  Absentee landlord Sardarov is a 60−year−old flamboyant Russian oligarch with an interest in energy businesses, property, aviation, hospitality and hunting wildlife for fun.
He bought several farms in Namibia measuring 28 000 hectares (around 28 000 football fields) in 2013 through his Switzerland−based company, Comsar Properties SA. Sardarov wanted to build a game ranch 70 kilometres outside the capital city Windhoek.  http://www.farmlandgrab.org/post/view/26123-namibia-russian-landlord-in-panama-papers
