- Again, there is a great danger that financial data from the rich of the earth can be leaked. The Bermuda-based Appleby trust office reports after a computer screen has been approached by the US International Consortium or Investigative Journalists with questions about potential tax evasion by customers. This organization was also involved last year with the publication of the Panama Papers.
Appleby takes note that the secret customer data will leak within a few days. The trust office has not done anything wrong and willing to cooperate in any investigations.
According to the British newspaper The Telegraph, various British wealthy people are worried that their financial data will be published. They have therefore taken legal and legal advisers to protect their reputation, according to The Telegraph.
In the Panama Papers last year, names of Barcelona star Lionel Messi and former AC Milan-vedette Clarence Seedorf appeared. Also ex-NS boss Bert Meerstadt and the father of then British Prime Minister David Cameron came in. The Prime Minister of Iceland, Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson, even got up after his name was mentioned in the leaked documents of the Mossack Fonseca trust office in Panama. The Panama Papers have led to more than 150 investigations in nearly 80 countries.
