Remember The Pandora Papers?

Of course not.

That would mean that most people have the capacity to store information….I doubt that is possible anymore.

So what is the Pandora Papers?

The Pandora Papers is a leak of almost 12 million documents and files exposing the secret wealth and dealings of world leaders, politicians and billionaires. The data was obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in Washington DC and has led to one of the biggest ever global investigations. More than 600 journalists from 117 countries have looked at the hidden fortunes of some of the most powerful people on the planet.

The Pandora Papers reveal how unusual offshore finances and secretive wealth have infiltrated global politics. Some of the people named in the papers are major political leaders in developing or impoverished countries, such as Jordan and Kenya.
“Many of the power players who could help bring an end to the offshore system instead benefit from it — stashing assets in covert companies and trusts while their governments do little to slow a global stream of illicit money that enriches criminals and impoverishes nations,” the ICIJ said in its introduction to the series, which is being published by the Washington Post in the United States and the BBC and The Guardian in the United Kingdom.
The names mentioned in the articles are a who’s who of heads of state, billionaires and public officials from all corners of the world. Here are five of the biggest takeaways from the series.
This illustrates just how deep the corruption around the world has bored its way into the seats of power.
For most of us this is not news we have been telling the world about this for decades….now there is proof to our accusations.
You are welcome.

  1. I recall these because of the Tony Blair revelations. Nonetheless, nothing was done about it, because it was all ‘legal’ under UK law.
    Best wishes, Pete.
