Panama papers may suggest sanctions breaches

The so-called ‘Panama papers’ leaked from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, consist of 40 year’s worth of records (some 11.5 million) for 214,488 entities connected to people in more than 200 countries, including emails, spreadsheets, corporate records and personal data. The press have reported that a number of the documents suggest attempts by sanctioned companies and people to circumvent sanctions.  Link here to interviews on this topic today on BBC News and Radio 4’s The World at One with Maya Lester QC of this blog.
