Your September Website: Who’s Who In The Panama Papers?
Find out who’s behind almost 320,000 offshore companies and trusts named in the Panama Papers leaks. Bear in mind that just because a person or entity is named in the database in no way suggests that they are guilty of anything – in fact it is believed that many (perhaps most) of the investments involved are entirely legitimate.
To access the ICIJ (the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists)’s searchable database of the leaks –
- Firstly go to “Three tips for searching the Offshore Leaks database”
- Then go to “Offshore Leaks Database” and start searching (if the site won’t open in Chrome, try it in another browser like Firefox or Microsoft Edge).
