A black bus winds its way through some of London's most expensive neighborhoods for a sightseeing tour with a difference – a guided visit around luxury houses bought by shady international tycoons and officials. The "Kleptocracy Tour" was set up by anti-corruption campaigner Roman Borisovich, who aims to expose dirty money fueling the high-end London property market and the teams of British "enablers" who make it happen.More than 36,000 properties in London are owned through offshore firms, which own a total £122 billion ($176 billion) worth of property across England and Wales.Buying properties through offshore companies can be a way of hiding the true owners and avoiding taxes.
