While A. Hamilton didn't end up taking the gift, he did say under cross-examination that he intended to put it into a HSBC bank account in Guernsey linked to a company in the British Virgin Islands that is registered to Davidson Hamilton, his father.

Hamilton actually was in control of the company registered to his father. A sordid affair if we've ever heard one...
