  • An investigation by more than 600 journalists from 150 news outlets has unearthed offshore dealings of 35 current and former world leaders and more than 300 other current and former public officials and politicians around the world.

  • The biggest leak in ICIJ history contains 2.94 terabytes of confidential information from 14 offshore service providers
