Assessment: The Pandora Papers reveal how unusual offshore finances and secretive wealth have infiltrated global politics.
A giant data dump is once more detailing the offshore tax activities of the worlds’ rich elites. Keeping with the alliterations, the release was dubbed the Pandora Papers by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which had also coordinated the release of previous prominent leaks the Paradise Papers and the Panama Papers.
“And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A [b]quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” Rev. 6:6
The list of those implicated this time around includes Colombian singer Shakira, Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias and former German top model Claudia Schiffer.
As Statista’s Katharian Buchholz details below, a total of 336 former or current politicians are also tied to offshore money via the release.
The most common countries of origin for them were the Ukraine and Russia, but also many places in Latin America and Africa. The UK was the only other European nation in the top 10 of countries with the most politicians named in the release. Among them are former prime minister Tony Blair and more will be named in the upcoming days. Read More @ Zero Hedge HERE
