|Offshore attorneys, Mossack, Zollinger & Fonseca.|
I bring this up, because Herr Zollinger was not only a partner at Mossack, he lived in the Republic long enough to acquire Panamanian citizenship, and a diplomatic passport. He was also an adviser to Panama's fugitive ex-president, Ricardo Martinelli, along with his partner, Ramón Fonseca. Martinelli, and several members of his cabinet, are alleged to have placed millions of dollars, in corrupt income, in Swiss banks, and what better person to assist the members of the "Martinelli Mafia," than a Swiss lawyer with more than a decade of experience at the Mossack firm. Furthermore, he dealt with a lot of "colorful" clients at the firm, who he may still be representing.

In any event, should you, or your bank clients, encounter Mr. Zollinger, govern yourselves accordingly. Remember, we live in a risk-based world.
