Panama Papers: Historic Leak Leads to Unprecedented Global Exposé

|

A massive leak of millions of financial records has exposed an array of crime and corruption spreading across the globe, according to a groundbreaking investigative report called The Panama Papers. The documents expose the hidden financial dealings of more than 128 politicians and public officials around the world, and the offshore holdings of 12 current and former heads of state. These are among the reported findings of a yearlong investigation by more than 100 media organizations.

Several ICFJ partners played a key role in the investigation, including the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), the African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR) and Connectas, a Latin American media organization devoted to cross-border investigations.
