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.”
