By Around the Web

(THE HILL) A massive leak of more than 11.5 million documents exposed the offshore accounts of current and former world leaders, The Center for Public Integrity reported Sunday.

The investigation of the files, known as the Panama Papers, was published Sunday by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

The investigation “exposes a cast of characters who use offshore companies to facilitate bribery, arms deals, tax evasion, financial fraud and drug trafficking,” according to the website.
“Behind the email chains, invoices and documents that make up the Panama Papers are often unseen victims of wrongdoing enabled by this shadowy industry.”
