Antanas Guoga is a member of the European Parliament from Lithuania and a professional poker champion also known as Tony G.

In the data

Guoga is a founder and former shareholder of iBus Media Ltd., a gambling news publisher on the Isle of Man. Appleby data show that another shareholder is Mark Scheinberg, a co-founder of PokerStars, an online gambling company that settled a U.S. Justice Department fraud lawsuit for $731 million in 2012. An internal Appleby message in 2015 said Guoga was no longer a shareholder or officer of iBus.

Guoga owns a company called SG Holdings Ltd., according to the Maltese corporate registry. He did not reveal that stake in his parliamentary disclosures, according to 15min.lt, an online media platform in Lithuania.

Response

Guoga told ICIJ partner in Lithuania 15min.It that the information regarding his interest in iBus Media “is fully public and is available at the tax office and other official authorities as it is declared according to the laws.” He also said that all the transactions, including sales of iBus Media shares, are known to the state tax office.

“I was an investor and did not participate in the operations of the business,” Guoga said.
