This past weekend, Wikileaks released 11.5m confidential documents belonging to Panamanian corporate service provider Mossack Fonseca that cite potentially hundreds of individuals and organizations that had hidden substantial monies in that Central American nation. 

CA.com has uncovered the possible ties to Amaya Gaming:

Among the companies listed in the Panama Papers is Zhapa Holdings Inc, a British Virgin Islands business whose master client is listed as IMF Network, a company based in Amaya’s corporate home of Montreal, Quebec. Among Zhapa’s listed shareholders are Goulissa Baazov, whom Canada’s Globe & Mail newspaper identified as the sister of David and his older brother Ofer Baazov aka Josh Baazov.

Zhapa.com appears to be defunct but used to bill itself as “the leading provider for low-cost online internet credit card processing merchant accounts for both Low Risk and High Risk merchants”.

CalvinAyre.com also reports that the online registries list a number of gambling websites hosted on Zapha.com’s DNS server that include the likes of BetonUSA.com and Oddsmaker.ag.
