Lakshmi Mittal:

This 53-year-old billionaire is the richest non-resident-Indian in the world and the fifth richest man in Britain. He started his career in his family’s steel making business in India and now owns the LMN Group, the world’s second biggest steel producers.

He moved to Britain in 1995 and came to public attention three years ago when the British Government became embroiled in a “cash for favours scandal” after Tony Blair wrote in support of him to the Romanian government following a £125,000 (RM860,000) donation to Labour Party coffers. Mittal is a contributor to the Prince’s Trust. Most of his money is tucked away legally in offshore tax havens like the Dutch Antilles.
