Jurgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca Mora, the senior partners in a law firm whose massive money laundering and tax evasion operations were brutally exposed by the Panama Papers, are in custody, being held for interrogation, on suspicion of money laundering. What is not publicly known is that they are in accommodations described as "luxury," and they have 24-hour visiting privileges. What's wrong with this picture ?

For those readers who are not familiar with the business culture in the Republic of Panama, it may be summarized thus: so long as a business brings cash into Panama, nobody will inquire into the Source of Funds, or the background of the clients. No wonder Mossack and Fonseca are being treated like Mafia kingpins, for they were responsible for bringing a large portion of the dirty money influx,  that drives new construction, real estate sales, and pays the exorbitant fees of the lawyers.

 I wonder if  M & F have conjugal visits ?
