The man with Clive Palmer's 'missing millions'

THE man gifted $7.6 million of Queensland Nickel's money, Clive Palmer's father-in-law Alexander Sokolov, is living a discreet and privileged life in Bulgaria, keeping his wealth hidden away.

The father of Mr Palmer's wife Anna has spent the past month cruising the Mediterranean with Mr Palmer and other family members, while liquidators in Australia try to claw back $106 million taken out of Queensland Nickel's coffers before it went bust, leaving 800 Queenslanders out of work.

A News Corp investigation has revealed Mr Sokolov and his wife, Anna's mother Stiliyana Nikolcheva Sokolova, own at least two properties in their home country of Bulgaria and travel frequently to Australia.

Their son, Anna's brother Georgi, also has a business registered in Bulgaria, although it is no longer operating.
