Humana People-to-People Alert

  Property and shipping  

Companies such as Argyll Property, AS Properties and the offshore Jersey-registered Argyll Smith are owners of much TG real estate including schools and ships. In the past some of these companies have attracted attention because of inflated leases. In the 1990s, according to police, the TG invested millions in apartments, land and ships through hidden companies like John F Parsons Inc, the Markham Corp, Eastover Properties, Xoreux, ZBF, Blue Ridge Ltd, and B&B Shipping.

  The Danish trusts  

Three key trusts in Denmark, around for 20-30 years. Often described as Tvind’s ‘money boxes’. They are DSI Estate, Fælleseje, and Thomas Brocklebank. A fourth, the formerly TG-run Humanitarian Foundation was the subject of the 2001-2 police investigation and current court case and is now no longer controlled by Tvind.

 A network of companies  

The Tvind organisation is a lot more than a volunteer bureau. Investigators have uncovered a web of at least 150 different companies, trusts and offshore accounts run by the Teachers Group.

So what’s wrong with that? It depends how they are used. In their 2001-2003 investigation, Danish police concluded many of the supposed ‘businesses’ and ‘charities’ were brass plate companies used to moved money around. Millions that should have gone to development was allegedly spent on property and land, they say.

Scores of Tvind companies and offshore accounts outside Europe have never been fully investigated. Here is a detailed list of many known Teachers Group companies – this is not comprehensive.

  Fake charities  

Charities and good causes identified by Danish police as, allegedly, fake include All Europe Satellite Television Ltd (a TV station), The Institute for Scientific Research and Applied Sciences, La Societe Verte and L’Energie Eternelle (‘green ‘charities) and One World Channel. Police say these were front companies which enabled the TG to hide money used to buy property. Cash could then be laundered through offshore holding companies or local businesses set up in far-flung places, such as Buckeye Ltd, Jambalaya Ltd, Jayhawk Ltd and South China Sea Farming.

 The types of TG company  

  Farming and forestry  

Millions of acres of landholdings in the Caribbean and Central America owned by offshore companies like Jersey-registered Bahia Farming Ltd, Caribbean Farming Ltd and Cayman-registered Tropical Farming Ltd. The TG’s main fruit and vegetable company trading produce from its landholdings is Fairbank, Cooper and Lyle.

  Manufacture, import-export  

Legitimate commercial trade in old clothes, timber, computers and foodstuffs run by known Teachers Group companies. U’SAgain, Garson and Shaw, offshore Holland House and ConMore are all commercial clothes traders. The Malaysia-based McCorry Group sells timber worldwide and is the subject of many emails. In Holland, EC Trading went bankrupt in 2000, owing £1.4 m.

  Offshore companies  

TG-run offshore ‘holding’ companies with a complex pattern of cross-ownership, said to be at the heart of Tvind. Many were identified by Danish investigators in the 2001 Danish police report. The main offshore companies identified were Camberley Ltd (Guernsey), Chatswood Ltd (Guernsey), Cooper Investments (Jersey), Fairbank Ltd (Jersey), the Hobhouse Trust (Jersey), Kirchheiner Bros (Jersey), Lyle Enterprise (Jersey) and the Farmers Trust. Many share the same directors and senior managers.

  Not-for-profit associations  

At least ten ‘Humana’ charities in Europe, various UFF used-clothes concerns in Scandinavia, Planet Aid, Gaia and U’SAgain in the US, Planet Aid and Green World in Britain, and DAPP and ADPP shops in Africa are all run by a huge web of companies. Many inter-relate and they do not always run to the highest ethical standards: Humana UK was closed down by the British Charity Commission in 1998 and at various times official warnings have been issued to Humana and UFF charities in France, Norway, Denmark and Holland.
