Mr Zahawi was dismissed as Conservative Party chairman by the
Prime Minister in the wake of an investigation by Sir Laurie Magnus, the ethics adviser, who found he committed a “serious breach of the Ministerial Code”.
He came under fire after it emerged that he settled an estimated £4.8 million bill with HMRC during his time as chancellor last summer, a sum believed to include a penalty to the taxman.
Mr Zahawi criticised The Independent newspaper in his letter to Mr Sunak after the digital tabloid ran the headline “The noose tightens” earlier in the week amid calls for his resignation from fellow Conservative MPs.
After reflecting on his work as the vaccines minister and a former chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster, he wrote: “I am concerned, however, about the conduct from some of the fourth estate in recent weeks.
“In a week when a Member of Parliament was physically assaulted, I fail to see how one headline on this issue ‘The Noose Tightens’ reflects legitimate scrutiny of public officials. I am sorry to my family for the toll this has taken on them.”
The Independent first broke the news that Mr Zahawi was being investigated by HMRC and the National Crime Agency during his bid to succeed
[Bullshit Bojo] as Conservative leader last July.
At the time, Mr Zahawi referred to the coverage as “inaccurate, unfair” and said in a statement: “It’s very sad that such smears should be circulated and sadder still that they have been published.”
But this was given short shrift by Sir Laurie, who wrote in his own letter to Mr Sunak: “I consider that an individual subject to the HMRC process faced by Mr Zahawi should have understood that they were under investigation by HMRC and that this was a serious matter.”
Geordie Greig, the former editor of the Daily Mail, this month took over as the editor-in-chief at the newspaper, which has run a series of negative headlines about Conservative politicians – and in particular
Mr Johnson – in the ensuing weeks.
Mr Zahawi’s letter to Mr Sunak contained no apology for the breach of the code or direct reference to the row around his taxes, which his allies insist are now up to date.
The Independent defended its coverage of the row in an editorial on Monday, and said the now-former Tory chairman’s criticisms of its coverage were “egregious”.
“Most egregiously, Mr Zahawi had a swipe at the press,” the paper’s leader column said.
“Yet were it not for the constant pressure of press attention, none of Mr Zahawi’s serious breaches of the ministerial code would ever have come to light…
“Let us not forget, either, that he was being investigated by HMRC, Mr Zahawi dismissed the report as “smears” and threatened to sue both the journalists and tax expert Dan Neidle, just for their audacity in telling the truth about him.”
THE INDEPENDENT 20 JANUARY 2023 - REVEALED: NADHIM ZAHAWI'S LEGAL THREAT TO THE INDEPENDENT TO STOP TAX REVELATIONS
The Conservative Party chairman Nadhim Zahawi tried to stop The Independent exposing that he was being investigated over his tax affairs by threatening to sue if we published.
Mr Zahawi, who was chancellor at the time, repeatedly said he had paid “all due taxes” and would take legal action if we reported that he had been investigated.
The Independent ignored his threats and published two reports, detailing how Mr Zahawi had faced inquiries from the Serious Fraud Office, the National Crime Agency and HMRC.
Mr Zahawi did not sue or complain to this newspaper – and has now reportedly paid a penalty of more than £1m to HMRC in a settlement worth almost £5m in total.
In an extraordinary exchange before The Independent broke the story that he was being investigated last July, Mr Zahawi repeatedly threatened legal action:
• When asked about the NCA inquiry, he responded: “One hundred per cent I will take legal action.”
• When questioned about the HMRC probe, he responded: “I will take legal action.”
• When pressed for an answer, he responded: “I have responded to you. I repeat I will take legal action.”
The Independent first reported that Inland Revenue experts were investigating Mr Zahawi’s tax affairs on 6 July after a secret inquiry by the NCA in 2020.
That inquiry was codenamed “Operation Catalufa” – after a species of ray-finned fish, orange in colour found in deep waters in the Pacific known as Popeye Catalufa. The NCA inquiry was said to involve its International Corruption Unit.
Whitehall officials were told Mr Zahawi had not been informed because investigators were “trawling for information”. The NCA inquiry did not lead to action against Mr Zahawi.
On 9 July, The Independent reported officers from the Serious Fraud Office had investigated his financial affairs. The investigation had been passed to HMRC – controlled by the Treasury for which Mr Zahawi, as chancellor, was responsible. A Whitehall source said the tax investigation was “unresolved” at that time.
Then-prime minister Boris Johnson and home secretary Priti Patel and the Cabinet Office had all been informed.
Since the recent report that Mr Zahawi has agreed to pay millions to HMRC, he has been in hiding and refused to answer questions about the matter.
Last July, when we published our two stories, The Independent asked Mr Zahawi detailed questions.
In view of his refusal to respond following the recent reports, and amid growing pressure on him to do so from Labour and others, The Independent has decided to publish in full its correspondence with Mr Zahawi before our report on 9 July.
Asked now by The Independent to explain why he had said he would take legal action before our reports last July, Mr Zahawi did not respond.
THE INDEPENDENT 6 JULY 2022
Mr Zahawi, we have had it confirmed that your finances were investigated by NCA going back to 2019 (and are informed) they raised this matter with senior Whitehall figures.
Can you respond?
Can you give details?
Did you inform PM and Treasury of this when you accepted the job of chancellor?
Does this affect your ability to do your new job as chancellor?
Can you give assurances that you have paid all due UK taxes and obeyed all financial laws and regulations?
There was no such investigation by NCA. I have paid all due taxes and obeyed all financial laws and regulations.
We have spoken to a senior source who was approached by the NCA about it formally in 2019.
I would know if the NCA had investigated me. Right?
Are you adamant that the NCA never told you? Our source has a very clear memory of being approached by them formally and told they were looking at your finances.
One hundred per cent I will take legal action. I can confirm that the NCA never approached me/told me anything ever in my career.
We have spoken to someone who was involved in the matter. There definitely was an NCA inquiry.
We are reliably informed it was the International Corruption Unit of the NCA (and it) started in 2020. SFO also involved. (We understand that) Whitehall figures were informed at the time (and that) Boris Johnson was aware.
Was it raised with you by him or anyone else when he appointed you chancellor? Has it ever been raised with you?
THE INDEPENDENT 7 JULY 2022
Have you been informed since taking over as chancellor that NCA and HMRC have been investigating your tax affairs?
You said yesterday you did not know about this. Are you certain?
Are you aware that Boris Johnson, Priti Patel and Cab Office were briefed on this in 2020?
How can a chancellor take charge of tax when he has been investigated for possible tax avoidance? We believe the investigation is still live.
Can you respond?
THE INDEPENDENT 8 JULY 2022
We plan to (publish) a story stating that the NCA SFO and HMRC have all been involved in investigating your finances/taxes since 2020. And that they briefed No 10, Cab Off and Home Off on this. We have had this information confirmed.
Can you reply to the following?
Has the HMRC now informed you of this?
Doesn’t it present a conflict of interest?
Will you make your tax declarations public?
I will take legal action.
We have asked you straightforward questions based on reliable information on the grounds of a clear public interest.
Can you respond please?
I have responded to you. I repeat I will take legal action.
It is normal practice to ask a politician for a response to serious questions in the public interest so it can be weighed up prior to publication. It is reasonable to expect a considered reply.
We have also established that HMRC inquiry into your tax affairs was carried out by their tax fraud investigators and that the investigation is unresolved.
