Panama Papers Database

Author: 

On May 9, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) posted the documents, known as the Panama Papers, leaked by “John Doe” from Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca.  Despite a cease and desist order being issued to prevent it being made public, the database can be found at offshoreleaks.icij.org.  The Panama Papers include over 11 million financial and legal records that give insight into the use of secret off-shore companies.

Interesting articles from the BBC on the database and the Panama Papers can be found here: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-36249982  and http://www.bbc.com/news/world-35934836
