Panama papers reporters: ‘More headlines to come’

By Around the Web

(The Local) The two German journalists of the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily behind the Panama Papers revelations say they are surprised by the global shockwaves the leak caused and promised more sensational disclosures.

“I never imagined there would be such a reaction, that it would be on every television channel and that we would receive media requests from all around the world,” one of the reporters, Bastian Obermayer, 38, told AFP.

Germany’s second-biggest daily in sales, the Sueddeutsche received from an anonymous source more than 11 million documents of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca that cast a harsh spotlight on the shady financial dealings of many of the world’s rich and powerful.
