Pandora Papers leaks reveal financial secrets of global elite.

DAILY NEWS BRIEF: Pandora Papers leaks reveal financial secrets of global elite.

A new trove of leaked financial documents known as the "Pandora Papers" illuminates the complex and shadowy world of offshore tax havens. 

The leaked documents detail the financial secrets of over 100 billionaires, world leaders, and celebrities from around the world.

The files have been examined by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), with over 650 journalists worldwide participating in the project.

The ICIJ was also instrumental in the release of the Panama Papers in 2017.

Daphne Anne Caruana Galizia was a Maltese journalist and anti-corruption activist. She revealed sensitive information about Maltese politicians in the wake of the Panama Papers release. On Oct. 17, 2017, she died in a car bomb explosion near her home. It is widely suspected that she was assassinated for her criticism of wealthy Maltese politicians and businessmen.

The documents reveal the owners of over 95,000 offshore shell companies.

World leaders whose asset holdings were revealed include King of Jordan Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein, ex-UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, and more.

Fergus Shiel of the ICIJ said of the wealthy elites whose affairs were revealed in the leaks:

"They are using those offshore accounts, those offshore trusts, to buy hundreds of millions of dollars of property in other countries, and to enrich their own families, at the expense of their citizens."
