An anonymous whistle-blower and an astounding 2600 GB of data. A giant leak of 11.5 million financial and legal records. A global collaboration of over 100 news organizations working in twenty-five languages in eighty countries. More than 350 reporters on the trail for nine months in complete secrecy. The Panama Papers exposed in black and white the crime and corruption of the rich and powerful who stashed away their wealth in tax havens. This is the India story of the mega investigation. The Panama Papers shook the world, woke up governments and showed what investigative journalism could achieve even in a post-truth world through a path-breaking alliance between an individual whistle-blower and a coalition of global media. The only Indian publication in the global collaboration, the Indian Express played a crucial role. Now, for the first time, award-winning journalists Ritu Sarin, Jay Mazoomdaar and P. Vaidyanathan Iyer tell the backstory of hot leads and cold trails, of open denial and veiled intimidation. The Panama Papers underlined the loot of public money and the need for tax reforms. In an age of rising inequality, the importance of public funding to fight poverty cannot be overstated. The lack of public confidence in regulatory frameworks or political will also fuels perceptions of illegitimacy of wealth. In India, black money has gained more currency than ever as a political metaphor and future electoral gains may well depend on the perceived success of a war against illegal wealth. Financial corruption though cannot be defeated without transparency in election funding. The Panama Papers reignited a global debate on surmounting these challenges.

The Panama Papers was a global project that united approximately 400 journalists worldwide. Their investigations are based on 11.5 million leaked files. This research studied how journalists collaborated with each other to produce the Panama Papers project and how the journalists sorted the data to prioritize which documents to study and which stories to work on. Data for the research was collected through the interviews recorded with the journalists and editors who worked and continue to work on the project, based on the biggest data leak in the history of journalism. This study showed there were inner rules everyone had to follow. One of them was a radical sharing of information among the project's participants via a secret communication platform. Participants revealed that journalists were sharing story ideas and giving recommendations to each other. This kind of behavior is not usually observed among reporters whose aim is to be first to publish a story. The close communication between reporters and editors turned out to be another aspect that contributed to the success of the project. And the layers of editors at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung helped to avoid any mistakes in the reporting. Information provided by the participants of the research allows the researcher to draw the following conclusion: The Panama Papers created a new paradigm of a global newsroom based on trust, inner rules and the cooperation of a few hundred journalists. It should be recalled that approximately 400 journalists from all around the globe participated in the Panama Papers. The researcher focused on the work process of the reporters and editors mostly in European countries. It would be interesting to see how these processes developed and worked in Asian and Latin American countries. The researcher assumes that the diversity within the cultures might have affected the work of the media professionals in those parts of the world, and conducting studies about this topic may present information that will help to see the Panama Papers project from a wider angle.

Now a Major Motion Picture The Laundromat from Director Steven Soderbergh, starring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, and Antonio Banderas. The two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jake Bernstein takes us inside the world revealed by the Panama Papers, illicit money, political corruption, and fraud on a global scale. A hidden circulatory system flows beneath the surface of global finance, carrying trillions of dollars from drug trafficking, tax evasion, bribery, and other illegal enterprises. This network masks the identities of the individuals who benefit, aided by bankers, lawyers, and auditors who get paid to look the other way. In The Laundromat, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Jake Bernstein explores this shadow economy and how it evolved, drawing on millions of leaked documents from the files of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca – a trove now known as the Panama Papers – as well as other journalistic and government investigations. Bernstein shows how shell companies operate, how they allow the superwealthy and celebrities to escape taxes, and how they provide cover for illicit activities on a massive scale by crime bosses and corrupt politicians across the globe. The Laundromat offers a disturbing and sobering view of how the world really works and raises critical questions about financial and legal institutions we may once have trusted.

Abstract The Panama Papers exposed—by indisputably illegal means—the details of few private foundations. As such, they are unlikely to threaten the existence of the private foundation or its utility as an estate planning or asset holding vehicle. While the numbers of Panamanian registered private foundations have decreased, onshore governments have not launched any wholesale attack on the use of private foundations as a result of the Panama Papers, but have instead continued pre-existing initiatives aimed at increasing transparency emboldened by increased public support post-Panama Papers. The impact on private foundations of this unprecedented data theft is therefore likely to be felt only indirectly.

The term politician has many negative connotations. We assume that if a person is a politician that means they are either corrupt or unscrupulous in some way. To be fair, not all are this way, but many are. The problem is, we always suspect that they are but we seldom find proof of this. It's rare that we find a politician prosecuted for crimes such as fraud, tax evasion or money laundering. When we do, it makes headlines because it confirms our deepest suspicions. And now, our deepest suspicions have been confirmed. New evidence has come to light that a vast scandal by the top politicians in the world have been funneling money through various hidden schemes to avoid detection. We are not only talking about South American despots, African Tyrants, Middle Eastern strong men and Russian Oligarchs, but also some of the most "esteemed" politicians of our age; the ones we thought were beyond financial fraud and conspiracy. This scandal is so far reaching that on April 5th 2016, the Prime Minster of Iceland had to resign because he too was implicated in it. The worst part of this is that not only politicians are implicated, but also celebrities and members of the criminal underground. The Scandal is now known as the Panama Papers. In this book, we will discuss this wide ranging conspiracy. There is no doubt at all, this will be the largest financial scandal ever to emerge in modern times and we all have a front seat to it. Several politicians and prominent will fall. Let us dive into the damning pages of the Panama Papers. We will cover: Who The Key figures Are The Complete Statistics of This Wide-Ranging Scandal Shell Companies How Whole Governments Have Been Rocked To Their foundations The Global Impact This Will Have and How This Will Change Everything And More Lurid Details. Including links to original documentation from the Leak.

The Panama Papers not only revealed how major corporations use tax havens for money laundering and the like, but one art world dynasty has been exposed to a potential scandal; owning a piece of Nazi looted art.

This article will discuss the lengthy saga that has become the history of Seated Man with a Cane, by Amedeo Modigliani and the true owner who has yet to be decided by the New York Supreme Court. Highlighting Holocaust restitution and new developments in legislation, this article will delve into the issues of secrecy, legality and the opacity that surrounds the art world in relation to restitution.

The next leap on the internet has already started as Semantic Web. At its core, Semantic Web transforms the document oriented web to a data oriented web enriched with semantics embedded as metadata. This change in perspective towards the web offers numerous benefits for vast amount of data intensive industries that are bound to the web and its related applications. The industries are diverse as they range from Oil & Gas exploration to the investigative journalism, and everything in between. This paper discusses eight different industries which currently reap the benefits of Semantic Web. The paper also offers a future outlook into Semantic Web applications and discusses the areas in which Semantic Web would play a key role in the future

On 8 November, when the clock strikes 12, your money will be no good. Somewhere on the India - Nepal Border, a car full of passengers swerves off a highway and plunges into a valley, its trunk full of cash. In the UK, a Bollywood starlet wins Big Survivor, the most popular reality TV show in the country. In Panama, Central America, a whistle-blower at a law firm brings down billionaires across the globe. And in India, a new RBI Governor is appointed. Aditya Kesavan is dynamic, charismatic and ambitious. And he's been handed the reins of the RBI on a platter. His only job: to make sure he doesn't rock the boat. But, unknown to him, the wheels have begun to turn, as the country heads towards the biggest financial event in modern Indian history. And Governor Kesavan is about to carry out the most brazen act of his life - and, perhaps, his most foolish. Will he be able to pull himself out of the mess he has got into or will he have to surrender to the manipulative forces behind the scenes? Running desperately out of time, the Governor must set things right.

In the generations after emancipation, hundreds of thousands of African-descended working-class men and women left their homes in the British Caribbean to seek opportunity abroad: in the goldfields of Venezuela and the cane fields of Cuba, the canal construction in Panama, and the bustling city streets of Brooklyn. But in the 1920s and 1930s, racist nativism and a brutal cascade of antiblack immigration laws swept the hemisphere. Facing borders and barriers as never before, Afro-Caribbean migrants rethought allegiances of race, class, and empire. In Radical Moves, Lara Putnam takes readers from tin-roof tropical dancehalls to the elegant black-owned ballrooms of Jazz Age Harlem to trace the roots of the black-internationalist and anticolonial movements that would remake the twentieth century. From Trinidad to 136th Street, these were years of great dreams and righteous demands. Praying or "jazzing," writing letters to the editor or letters home, Caribbean men and women tried on new ideas about the collective. The popular culture of black internationalism they created--from Marcus Garvey's UNIA to "regge" dances, Rastafarianism, and Joe Louis's worldwide fandom--still echoes in the present.
