    Panama Papers: German paper publishes ‘biggest leak in history’ on corruption
    [​IMG]
    Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) has released the biggest leak in journalistic history, posting 11.5 million documents from a Panamanian law firm online and providing “rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows.”
    SZ said it received the law firm’s documents a year ago from an anonymous source who “wanted neither financial compensation nor anything else in return.”

    The German paper obtained further documents in an investigation that followed, involving “400 journalists from more than 100 media organizations in over 80 countries.”

    SZ said it decided to analyze the data in cooperation with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).





    The data in the so-called Panama Papers, “provides rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows. It proves how a global industry led by major banks, legal firms, and asset management companies secretly manages the estates of the world’s rich and famous: from politicians, FIFA officials, fraudsters and drug smugglers, to celebrities and professional athletes,” the German newspaper wrote.





    The information in the leak covers the activities of the Mossack Fonseca firm over a period from the 1970s to spring 2016.

    The Panama Papers include approximately 11.5 million documents – more than the combined total of the Wikileaks Cablegate, Offshore Leaks, Lux Leaks, and Swiss Leaks,” SZ said.

    The data is presented in the form of e-mails, pdf files, photo files, and excerpts from the Panaman firm’s database.





    The leak claims to expose the offshore holdings of 12 current and former world leaders and provides data on the financial activities of 128 other politicians and public officials from different countries.

    Virtually all are from 3rd world shitholes that we already knew were hopelessly corrupt. Reason number 10,467 why we should control how many of them we let into our country.

    That said, I'm happy to wait and see if anything interesting turns up.
