Biggest Leak in History...The Panama Papers

Just broke today....



https://panamapapers.icij.org/

Key findings: The Panama Papers by the numbers

The largest cross-border journalism collaboration ever has uncovered a giant leak of documents from Mossack Fonseca, a global law firm based in Panama.

The secret files:

Include 11.5 million records, dating back nearly 40 years – making it the largest leak in offshore history. Contains details on more than 214,000 offshore entities connected to people in more than 200 countries and territories. Company owners in billionaires, sports stars, drug smugglers and fraudsters.

Reveal the offshore holdings 140 politicians and public officials around the world – including 12 current and former world leaders. Among them: the prime ministers of Iceland and Pakistan, the president of Ukraine, and the king of Saudi Arabia.

Document some $2 billion in transactions secretly shuffled through banks and shadow companies by associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Include the names of at least 33 people and companies blacklisted by the U.S. government because of evidence that they’d been involved in wrongdoing, such as doing business with Mexican drug lords, terrorist organizations like Hezbollah or rogue nations like North Korea and Iran.

Show how major banks have driven the creation of hard-to-trace companies in offshore havens. More than 500 banks their subsidiaries and their branches – including HSBC, UBS and Société Générale – created more than 15,000 offshore companies for their customers through Mossack Fonseca.

https://panamapapers.icij.org/blog/2...-findings.html

Looks like Cold War 2 has officially begun, as we move more armed forces to the Russian border and the China Sea....let's hope it stays cold.

Actually, I expect this cold war to be more of a "Cloud War", with war being waged by way of the internet and data systems.

Interesting but not surprising.

And the American People, even those who are aware of it, will wait for the media to tell them whether it is important or not. Most are unable to make such judgements independantly.

Pretty good page here with updates...

http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...-far-data-leak

I think the biggest stories going right now, as of this post....is David Cameron in trouble, and the Brinks-Mat robbery.

The US-Soros financing of the hack is just breaking...though I think this may be significant....because if this is true, or believed....this could be just the spark that sets us off WW3, beginning with cyber warfare between nation states.

It could be a beautiful thing at that stage, because it could expose the corruption of most world leaders and businesses, and it would mark the FIRST TIME IN HISTORY that I know of, where the elite and leaders are the FIRST casualties of war....at least symbolically, if not literally.

Panama Papers Are About Government Corruption, Not 'Tax Evasion'
Governments will seek to focus on general tax evasion charges to distract from evidence of corruption by public officials.

http://reason.com/blog/2016/04/05/pa...vernment-corru


Here is ANOTHER take on the Panama Papers, one with some skepticism about the Putin connection...an analysis which seems to be a pretty good one to me, and I find compelling.

MEXICO CITY — The two men came together in an era of political and economic uncertainty in Panama: One a reserved German immigrant whose father served in the armed wing of the Nazi party, the other a gregarious, aspiring novelist whose family opposed Panama’s military dictatorship.

With the nation still under the sway of Gen. Manuel Noriega, the pair merged their small law firms in 1986, creating what would become a powerhouse of secretive offshore banking for the elite. Over the next three decades, Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca expanded their practice to a staff of 500, with affiliate companies around the world and a client list of the powerful, the famous and, sometimes, the infamous.

In January, a prosecutor investigating the sweeping corruption in Brazil publicly called their law firm “a huge money launderer.”

The partners had become very wealthy, and Mr. Fonseca leveraged the firm’s success to gain an influential role in the upper ranks of politics. He told associates that he wanted to clean up the government, serving as a special adviser to President Juan Carlos Varela until the corruption scandal in Brazil forced Mr. Fonseca to resign this year.

In an interview, he said that entering politics was, in part, a way of giving back. “I believe in sharing the pizza,” he wrote. “At least to give others one slice.”

The firm, Mossack Fonseca, was built on assurances of bulletproof privacy for its clients. But its operations were laid bare this week by a vast leak of millions of documents that have helped expose the proliferation of shell companies and tax havens for the world’s wealthiest people. The revelations have already prompted Iceland’s prime minister to step aside and spurred criminal investigations on at least two continents.

The leak has also brought more scrutiny to Panama’s financial and legal sectors, just as the country’s leadership was trying to shed its longstanding reputation as a haven for the loot of the criminal and corrupt. In February, Panama was removed from a watch list maintained by an international agency that sets standards to combat money laundering and terrorism financing, but it remains under scrutiny as a haven for tax evaders.

Panama’s president has vowed to cooperate with any judicial investigations stemming from the leaked information, which could put him in the awkward position of allowing an inquiry into his former adviser.

Mossack Fonseca has denied that it committed any wrongdoing, and Mr. Fonseca proclaimed his firm’s innocence.

“At the end of this storm the sky will be blue again and people will find that the only crime is the hacking” of the firm’s documents, he said in an hourlong interview conducted over the messaging platform WhatsApp.


Much more at link.

Figured I would post the article Corbett referenced in his video, because I think it is relevant.....

From February, 2016...

The problem child
A tax haven professes to stand on principle, risking pariah status

PANAMA’S most notorious moment as a haven for tainted cash came with the nationalisation of money-laundering in the 1980s under Manuel Noriega, a military strongman. It has since clamped down on egregious financial criminality, but remains home to thousands of secretive firms and famous for the discretion of its bankers and lawyers. The Central American microstate is the financial and incorporation centre of choice for many Latin Americans and Europeans—and, critics say, many financial ne’er-do-wells.

It is also holding out against global tax-transparency plans known as the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) being championed by the OECD club of rich nations. It says it will develop its own standard, which will probably mean less information, exchanged with fewer countries. Small financial centres, it huffs, are being bullied into accepting competitiveness-sapping rules shunned by some bigger countries, in particular America. “We’ll move at the same speed as the slowest,” says one of its leading lawyers. “Otherwise our financial centre faces a death sentence.”

Some suspect a delaying tactic rather than a principled stand. The many conditions Panama has set for joining in the automatic exchange of tax information were crafted to ensure it never will, they say. But it has, to its credit, made some important reforms. A new law requires bankers, lawyers and professionals in 30 other industries to know the names of client firms’ real owners and to pass them to law enforcement on request. It hopes this will help get it removed from a list of countries with poor safeguards against money-laundering, compiled by more scrupulous governments.

That will depend partly on how strictly the law is enforced. And there are other concerns, such as Panama’s fondness for anonymous bearer-share companies, widely regarded by other countries as a favourite vehicle of criminals. They must now be registered with a custodian. But the listed owner can be another firm.

And Panama’s biggest law firms are giant offshore-company incorporation factories. Many wield power of attorney to conceal ownership. Some market their services to financial firms serving Latin American clients, “guaranteeing” that the country will not sign agreements to exchange information with their home countries, such as Argentina and Mexico.

According to a Brazilian prosecutor, there is evidence that Mossack Fonseca, one of Panama’s largest law firms, laundered money for some of those implicated in a vast bribery scandal centred on Petrobras, Brazil’s state-controlled oil giant. The law firm, one of whose senior partners, Ramon Fonseca Mora, is a “minister counsellor” in Panama’s government, says it always does the required due diligence on clients. It says it has been a victim of a smear campaign by political opponents and is “certain that our name will be cleared very soon”.

http://www.economist.com/news/intern...8af4f7a640fd8a

This article really makes it clear to me that this "leak" is likely an intelligence operation from the US State Department, and explains why they were targeted, and explains the selective nature of the people exposed in the leak.

So....the whole leak is actually a US intelligence operation, and not some hacker group or whistleblower, because Panama would not sign onto the Global Government plan, and was acting as a Switzerland of Latin America.

No US diplomats or important figures, a list filled with adversaries of the state department, and nationwide reporting implicating Putin, even though Putin is not in any of the leaks.

Welcome to the beginning of WW3, people. Let the information and currency wars begin.

Panama Papers: Obama, Clinton Pushed Trade Deal Amid Warnings It Would Make Money Laundering, Tax Evasion Worse

Years before more than a hundred media outlets around the world released stories Sunday exposing a massive network of global tax evasion detailed in the Panama Papers, U.S. President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed for a Bush administration-negotiated free trade agreement that watchdogs warned would only make the situation worse.

Soon after taking office in 2009, Obama and his secretary of state — who is currently the Democratic presidential front-runner — began pushing for the passage of stalled free trade agreements (FTAs) with Panama, Colombia and South Korea that opponents said would make it more difficult to crack down on Panama’s very low income tax rate, banking secrecy laws and history of noncooperation with foreign partners.

Even while Obama championed his commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy, he pursued and eventually signed the Panama agreement in 2011. Upon Congress ratifying the pact, Clinton issued a statement lauding the agreement, saying it and other deals with Colombia and South Korea "will make it easier for American companies to sell their products." She added: "The Obama administration is constantly working to deepen our economic engagement throughout the world, and these agreements are an example of that commitment."

Critics, however, said the pact would make it easier for rich Americans and corporations to set up offshore corporations and bank accounts and avoid paying many taxes altogether.

“A tax haven ... has one of three characteristics: It has no income tax or a very low-rate income tax; it has bank secrecy laws; and it has a history of noncooperation with other countries on exchanging information about tax matters,” Rebecca Wilkins, a senior counsel with Citizens for Tax Justice, a nonpartisan nonprofit that advocates changes in U.S. tax policy, told the Huffington Post in 2011. “Panama has all three of those. ... They’re probably the worst.”

The Panama FTA pushed for by Obama and Clinton, watchdog groups said, effectively barred the United States from cracking down on questionable activities. Instead of requiring concessions of the Panamanian government on banking rules and regulations, combating tax haven abuse in Panama could violate the agreement. Should the U.S. embark on such an endeavor, it could be exposed to fines from international authorities.

“The FTA would undermine existing U.S. policy tools against tax haven activity,” warned consumer watchdog group Public Citizen at the time, saying the agreement would encourage corporations to thwart any U.S. efforts to combat financial secrecy. The group also noted that U.S. government contractors, as well as major financial firms supported by taxpayer bailouts, stood to gain from the trade deal's provisions that could make it harder to crack down on financial secrecy.


Before the agreement was ratified, the Obama administration did forge a tax information sharing agreement with the Panamanian government that it said would increase financial transparency. Public Citizen, however, asserted that the separate agreement "does not remedy these problems" of secrecy, noting that it "merely requires Panama to stop refusing to provide information to U.S. officials on specific cases if U.S. officials know to inquire."

The Sunday reports on the so-called Panama Papers exposed nearly 40 years’ worth of information that included more than 11 million documents on more than 210,000 companies, trusts, foundations and world leaders with offshore dealings in Panama where money laundering, tax avoidance and crime (including funding terrorism) are made easy. The leak, from financial services firm Mossack Fonseca, shows that the organization helped clients perform all of those acts.

The leaks have revealed a suspected billion-dollar money laundering ring that includes many close allies and associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and showed that Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugson has been hiding interest linked to his wife’s wealth. A total of 12 current or former heads of state and 60 people linked to current or former leaders have been revealed to have had secretive dealings in Panama.

And...in the ongoing dumpster fire that is DB...

Deutsche Bank Prosecutors Said to Obtain Client List in Raid
January 9, 2019, 6:36 AM EST Updated on January 9, 2019, 9:23 AM EST

List is said to include name of 900 individuals and entities

Clients on list are said to be mostly located outside Germany

Frankfurt prosecutors obtained a list of more than 900 clients from Deutsche Bank AG in a case tied to the Panama Papers, a key piece of evidence in an investigation that spurred a raid at the German lender’s headquarters in November.

The list contains the names of individuals and entities mostly located outside Germany, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing confidential information. The raid by law enforcement officials focused on the role of a former Deutsche Bank wealth management entity in the British Virgin Islands.

Deutsche Bank and representatives for the prosecutor declined to comment.

The Panama Papers showed that Deutsche Bank employees may have helped customers set up off-shore companies in tax havens, prosecutors said at the time. Those companies were allegedly involved in tax evasion, they said, adding that 900 clients were allegedly served via the unit. Prosecutors also seized extensive data on paper and electronically, the people familiar with the matter said.

The footage of rows of police cars parked in front of the bank’s two downtown Frankfurt towers in November fueled concerns about potentially expensive legal risks and sent the share price to an all-time low.

Deutsche Bank fell 2 percent at 3:20 p.m. in Frankfurt trading, bringing losses over the past 12 months to 51 percent.

Chief Executive Officer Christian Sewing expressed surprise at the raid, saying in a newspaper interview at the time that the bank had considered the case closed, having examined it in “close cooperation with supervising authorities” in 2016, when news about the Panama Papers first broke. The head of Germany’s financial supervisor Bafin, Felix Hufeld, said a year ago that the German banks probed over the Panama Papers had “largely” complied with existing money-laundering rules.

Two Deutsche Bank employees also targeted by the investigation remain employed, Sewing has said. The bank isn’t currently planning to set aside money for potential fines stemming from the findings of the raid, a person familiar has said.
