Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) partner, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), has released a new leak revealing the owners and directors of tens of thousands of offshore companies in the Bahamas. The names include a former top European official.
The Bahamas documents also include the names of 539 agents that acted as middlemen between Bahamian authorities and people wishing to set up companies.
Among these agents is Mossack Fonseca, the law firm at the heart of the Panama Papers, which helped set up some 15,915 entities in the Bahamas.
