Brexiteer and former UKIP funder Arron Banks has been referred by the Electoral Commission to the National Crime Agency for investigation over millions of pounds of donations and loans allegedly from ‘impermissible’ non-UK companies.
Rumours have long abounded about the source of Banks’ donations, which he has maintained he funded himself.
Companies in the Isle of Man and Gibraltar are believed to be involved, although they may not be the ultimate source of the funds. The Electoral Commission believes a number of serious criminal offences are involved, according to BBC News.
