MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Russian Prosecutor-General’s office has dispatched a request to Panama asking for information about the offshore affair, Prosecutor-General Yuri Chaika said while answering questions in the Federation Council (upper house of parliament) on Wednesday.
"We’ve sent a request to our Panamanian counterparts," Chaika said. "We are conducting such a probe (into the owners of offshore accounts and companies - TASS). Its results will be reported to the country’s leadership and made public."
At the same time he remarked that the affair looked like a "special operation."
"Already now we have practically no doubts that we’ve been witnesses to a well-planned and coordinated operation by the authorities of one of the Western states," Chaika said.
"The latest publications provide absolute proof that we’ve seen a special operation. Personally I have no doubts on that score. The leak of documents that took place would’ve been absolutely impossible without an involvement of secret services," Chaika said.
He believes that "the work to systematize and examine the documents should of course be done by professional lawyers and finance experts, and not journalists who sell their stories like hot cakes."
"The media’s task was to convert the pre-cooked results into plain language and make a fuss," Chaika said.
