From the Database:
The Sunday Times Data Team has now compiled a list of companies in Panama set up by Mossack Fonseca and its associates, as well the directors, shareholders and legal agents of those companies, as reported to the Panama companies registry. Pictured above on the right, Ian Cameron, the prime minister’s father, had an offshore investment fund.
Many of these directors are stooges, paid by Mossack Fonseca to conceal the identity of the true owners. One of them is even reported to have been dead for years yet is still used as a director for current offshore companies. But others are bona fide – including David Cameron’s late father Ian – who is named in the database.
Using offshore companies is not a crime, and they do have some legitimate purposes. Just because a company or person appears in this list does not mean they have done anything wrong.
