NEW LEAK OF MOSSACK AND FONSECA DOCUMENTS SHOWS THE LAW FIRM DID NOT KNOW WHO THEIR CLIENTS WERE

A new leak of internal documents at the now-closed law firm of Mossack and Fonseca has revealed that, in the aftermath of the chaos created by the release of the "Panama Papers,"the firm desperately sought to identify the beneficial owners behind the thousands of shell corporations it formed in several offshore tax havens.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which exposed the original Panama Papers, reports that the law firm tried to make up for years of neglect, in attempting to conduct the due diligence it had deliberately neglected when it formed all those dodgy shell companies. The ICIJ has acquired correspondence from the firm in the period after the release of the Panama Papers, until the firm closed.

Readers who wish to follow Panama Papers 2.0, should access the ICIJ website at   www.icij.org/
