FCBayernMunchen wrote:A huge leak of confidential documents has revealed how the rich and powerful use tax havens to hide their wealth.
Eleven million documents were leaked from one of the world's most secretive companies, Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.
They show how Mossack Fonseca has helped clients launder money, dodge sanctions and evade tax.
The company says it has operated beyond reproach for 40 years and has never been charged with criminal wrong-doing.
The documents show links to 72 current or former heads of state in the data, including dictators accused of looting their own countries.
They were obtained by the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung and shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
BBC Panorama and The Guardian are among 107 media organisations in 78 countries that have been analysing the documents. [source]
Implicates public figures from all over the world, including Malta. Hopefully the beginning of the end of the political class that have been "legal dictators" since WW2.

Corruption is human. It's a pity when politicians are forced to resign over corruption of a small scale (tax evasion with personal money) because if they're in office it will often (not always) mean they're still the best at their job. So when they get replaced, not only would you still get a corrupt politician in his place but you get an incompetent one as well.
Several major footballers have been linked to offshore bank accounts and investments, as have figures in and around football federations such as Fifa, Concacaf and Conmebol.
Mossack Fonseca’s documents have also reportedly referenced the economic activity of some football executives who are separately accused of paying or taking bribes in the ongoing Fifa corruption scandal.
