ICIJ to make some Mossack Fonseca information public

The data will not make private information public.

Prosecutors from Paraguay arrived in Panama yesterday.


The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) announced that it will make public some of the records of Mossack Fonseca that were the basis of its reporting into the law firm.

The information will be shared on its web site, however, it will not be all of the 11.5 million documents that were obtained by the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared with the ICIJ.

The data contained information on companies, trust, foundations and funds incorporated in 21 jurisdictions, from Hong Kong to Nevada. Information will be published through an interface that will allow users to do searches for names of the directors or final beneficiaries.

The information will not include bank records, financial transactions, e-mails, photographs or telephone numbers.

In addition, the information will be combined with the database of a previous investigation of the ICIJ, called 'Offshore Leaks.'

According to the ICIJ, any person will be able to review the information.


Two officials of the Public Ministry of Paraguay arrived today in Panama to meet with the Attorney General and prosecutors investigating Mossack Fonseca.

The Paraguayan daily ABC Color said special prosecutor Hernán Galeano will be one of those arriving in Panama. He will be accompanied by Manuel Doldán. 

They will meet with Javier Caraballo, who is leading the investigation.

The Paraguayan media hinted that the Panamanian authorities would share part of the documents that were obtained after two raids on the offices of the Panamanian law firm.
