Documents leaked anonymously out of the Panamanian law firm, Mossack-Fonseca have revealed the previously untraceable financial transactions of some of the world’s most powerful people.
The Guardian’s infographic explains exactly how these transactions managed to remain untraceable until now.
The source of this “Biggest Leak in History” remains anonymous. It has been the subject of an investigative effort by 400 journalists for the past year and it just went public on Sunday afternoon, April 3, 2016.
As Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange.org astutely points out, the politicians exposed in this leak are largely those who are “thorns in the side” of the Western elite, including political leaders, Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad, leading him to speculate that this leak was engineered by a Western intelligence organization.
Dr. Henning Witte, a German-Swedish lawyer is now alleging that Hans Leyendcker, the Senior Editor of Suddeutsche Zeitung, the German newspaper, which originally received the leaked documents has been “a CIA agent [for] a very long time.”
Witte continues, “The fact that the Panama Papers first went to the CIA agent, Leyendecker and no American politician, bank or company is accused, but Putin, in spite of the fact that he personally had no account…prove clearly that the leak of the Panama Papers is a smear campaign from the CIA against Putin.
“They had one year…to put away the evidence against American players. Only those being not convenient to American interests are blamed.”
