When to Expect Access to Panama Papers?

The ICIJ will be revealing an online searchable database which will let anybody search and view the details of the owners of any offshore companies whose information was leaked through Mossack Fonseca.

All of the original documents will also be available for verification of the owners of the offshore companies. The database is said to be one of the largest ever document cloud online. It will contain information regarding companies, trusts, foundations and funds established in any of the 21 tax havens around the world.

The database cannot be used to access personal information like addresses, phone number, passport numbers and email addresses. The database is now online. You can search the complete list (as it updates continuously) at or download this PDF document which consists of the names of all people who were listed in the Panama Leaks (as of 10 May 2016).

  • Can’t wait to see the idiots now thinking their is no difference between a business man and a member of government having panama companies!

    Sadly idiots are not a minority!

  • 确实不错,这个要实话实说!(Translation:Really good, this should tell the truth!)

  • Well, why should Pakistani taxpayer pay his tax? when taxpayer money in few years will be parked at some offshore company? I guess today i found reason that i am no more morally obliged to pay my taxes correctly!!

    • Your probably paying more then your share via indirect taxes. The government makes more money via the indirect then it will when you file and pay your taxes. So even if you don’t pay direct taxes it doesn’t matter to them.

  • all this money will drain into sink ans america will seize all account … and get all the money…. these leaders and corrupt ppl will get nothing

  • The News story may land PM Nawaz & children in trouble.

    Soon after the Panama Leaks made headlines, the children of Pakistan’s Prime Minister appeared in dozens of TV shows to defend their properties abroad.

    Talking to an anchor of private news channel, one of Nawaz’s sons claimed that the Sharif family had purchased the Flats in Park Lane after selling their steel mill in Jeddah.

    However, the story published in The News has exposed the lie of ruling family by publishing a decision of London court.

    According to The News reporter Usman Manzoor, the London court in 1999 had proceeded against PM’s two brothers and father, Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Mian Abbas Sharif and Mian Muhammad Sharif, for defaulting on a loan obtained from the Al-Towfeek Investment Fund in the name of Hudaibiya Paper Mills and had attached four properties of the Sharifs.

    UK court’s decision proved that the Sharif family was the declared owner of the London flats because it obtained a loan facility from a UK-based investment fund by pledging these properties with the fund.

    The Sharif family’s response so far has mainly remained focused on the post 2006 transactions while the family has so far tried to avoid discussing the details of offshore companies from 1993 to 2006.

    How will the Sharif family justify their claims of not owning the offshore companies and London flats prior to 2006?

    London court’s 1999 decision proves Sharifs own Park Lane flats
