PANAMA CITY, Panama, May 9 – The Panama Papers scandal promises to deepen around the world on Monday when a journalists’ group with access to the digital cache of documents is to put many of them online.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) is to release the documents in a searchable database at 1800 GMT on Monday accessible to the public at offshoreleaks.icij.org.
The US-based organization said the release “will not be a ‘data dump'” of the sort the Wikileaks group became known for.
But it will reveal names and information on 200,000 offshore entities set up by wealthy individuals around the world.
The documents are from 2.6 terabytes of data given to a German newspaper, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, over a year ago by an anonymous source using the name “John Doe.”
