Switzerland Offshore: welcome to shell company paradise
The Pandora Papers
The Pandora Papers are 11.9 million leaked documents that the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published beginning on 2nd October 2021. The news organizations of the ICIJ described the document leak as their most expansive exposé of financial secrecy yet, containing documents, images, emails and spreadsheets from 14 offshore firms, in nations including Panama, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. It exposes a shadow financial system that benefits the world’s most rich and powerful. Switzerland must learn the lessons from the Pandora Papers and plug its legal loopholes which facilitate the global merry-go-round of tax evasion and white-collar crime.
