Secrecy for Sale

Key Takeaways

This week the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), a United States-based investigative non-profit organisation, launched what is thought to be the biggest cross-border journalism collaboration yet.

The M&G Centre for Investigative Journalism (amaBhungane) is part of that project, which drew on a leaked cache of 2.5-million records — totalling more than 260 gigabytes of data that lay bare the secrets of more than 120 000 offshore companies and trusts.

Working with journalists from 46 countries, the project has exposed forgotten money trails and hidden dealings of covert companies and private trusts in offshore hideaways.
