Panama Papers Reveals 200 U.S Citizens Used Mossack Fonseca

HeadlineApr 06, 2016

This comes as the Panama Papers have revealed at least 200 U.S. citizens who used the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca, the world’s fourth-largest offshore law firm. The list includes Robert Miracle of Bellevue, Washington, who is serving a 13-year sentence for a multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme based on investments in Indonesian oil fields, and Benjamin Wey, head of the private equity firm New York Global Group. Wey was indicted last year on securities fraud. Since the beginning of the publication of the Panama Papers on Sunday, many have questioned why more U.S. citizens and companies have not been named in the articles analyzing the more than 11.5 million secret files.
