What he got back from his donation isn’t known but there is still a very interesting story:
After nearly two decades hiding in Northern Cyprus the shamed former business tycoon Asil Nadir returned to the UK and was eventually tried, found guilty of stealing £29 million from Polly Peck, and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. The thefts took place in the years before Polly Peck collapsed in 1990.
The Conservative party still steadfastly refuse to return the cash to the Polly Peck creditors, even though it was donated to them by a convicted criminal via the company he was in the process of pillaging.
During his tenure as Polly Peck CEO, Nadir donated £440,000 to the Tory party.
