WASHINGTON, April 5. /TASS/. Publishing Panama papers on offshores was not directed against Russia, director of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) Gerard Ryle told TASS on Tuesday.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published on Sunday some 11.5 million documents of the Panamanian legal firm Mossack Fonseca revealing "the offshore links of some of the planet’s most prominent people." The leak includes material on hidden financial dealings of a range of Russian legal entities and individuals.
"As you can see, it wasn't a story about Russia. It was a story about the offshore world," Ryle said. "We have not released the full database and we don't intend to," he added.
