Giant leak of offshore financial records exposes crime, corruption 

A new investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative 
Journalists, the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and more than 100 
other news organizations around the globe, reveals the offshore links of 
some of the planet’s most prominent people.

Read this investigation 

In terms of size, it is likely the biggest leak of inside information in 
history – more than 11.5 million documents – and it is equally 
likely to be one of the most explosive in the nature of its revelations.

The leak exposes the offshore holdings of 12 current and former world 
leaders and reveals how associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin 
secretly shuffled 
as much as $2 billion through banks and shadow companies.

The files also provide details of the hidden financial dealings of 128 
other politicians and public officials around the world and show how a 
global industry of law firms and big banks sells financial secrecy 
to fraudsters and drug traffickers as well as billionaires, celebrities 
and sports stars.
