Protesters Call for Thorough Investigation of “Panama Papers” Law Firm

HeadlineApr 14, 2016

In Panama, authorities have raided the offices of the Mossack Fonseca law firm at the center of the Panama Papers scandal. A massive data leak revealed the firm set up a global network of shell companies for heads of state and other elites to store money offshore to avoid taxes and oversight. Authorities seized 100 computer servers during a 27-hour raid. Protesters rallied outside the firm to demand a thorough investigation.

Luis González: “We believe it’s important for the attorney general to actively investigate this act of corruption, this embarrassment, which was revealed internationally, in which Panama looks very bad at the moment.”
