The impending release of information contained within 11.5 million documents and other information called the ‘Panama Papers’ has received unprecedented media attention around the world. This has cast a spotlight on offshore structures generally and particularly on those structures connected with Mossack Fonseca.
Set to be published on 9 May by the International Consortium of Journalists, the searchable database will include information on more than 200,000 companies, trusts, foundations and funds incorporated in 21 tax havens, from Hong Kong to Nevada in the United States. These anticipated disclosures could have implications for, and could assist with the investigation of existing and future international fraud investigations, corruption claims, and other litigation matters.
