The recent indictment, in US District Court in New York, of a former Mossack and Fonseca attorney, reminds us that there are a large number of former MF staff attorneys, all of whom formed shell corporations and sham foundations, for the purpose of assisting their clientele to evade taxes in their home countries, launder the proceeds of corruption, and clean narcotics profits.
After MF was shuttered, they dispersed throughout the Republic of Panama, and abroad. Most cleverly deleted any mention of their employment at Mossack from their LinkedIn pages and resumés. Several arrogantly began to advertise their ability to form opaque corporate entities, forming their own firms, so that they could cover up their dark role at MF.
Although this blog cautioned readers, noting that these MF alumni pose a clear and present danger to legitimate commerce, there was no evidence that our warnings were heeded. Therefore, we are posting listing below the two original articles that named the attorney members on the Mossack staff. You may access them by typing the article titles into either of the two search boxes .
