Brace yourselves! The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists(ICIJ), has announced that it will be dumping a second batch of documents regarding hundreds of thousands of offshore entities as part of its ongoing Panama Papers investigation on May 9th.
The new release of documents will have basic corporate information on more than 200,000 offshore entities made available in a searchable database.
The ICIJ clariffied that round two won’t include a “data dump” of the original documents or the large-scale release of personal data, it has said the next phase.
But it will likely be the largest ever release of secret offshore companies and the people behind them.
The Panama Papers label refers to more than 11 million legal and financial records of the world’s power elite taken from Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca.
