#PanamaPapers: Billionaire George Soros Linked to Offshore Arms Trade

Subscribe
The so-called Panama Papers contain links to US billionaire George Soros, who established a number of offshore investment partnerships, including a private equity partnership with US Carlyle Group engaged in investment in arms manufacturers using offshore business, US media reported, citing leaked documents.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On May 9, the International Consortium of Independent Journalists (ICIJ) published a new portion of documents on 320,000 offshore accounts that were leaked from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca.

According to the Fox News broadcaster, the ICIJ did not mention Soros’ companies in the offshore leaks database except for just one investment group, the Quantum Group of Funds, which does not generate particular interest as an offshore company.

#PanamaPapers: Role Soros Played in Biggest Leak in History
A special information request made by the channel revealed that Soros Capital established an offshore firm in the Cayman Islands in order to set a a private equity partnership with the Carlyle Group, an US asset management and financial services corporation specializing in buying and selling companies producing weapons and gathering intelligence data.

The Carlyle Group was also allegedly connected with members of Saudi Arabia’s bin Laden family, according to Fahrenheit 911 documentary film, and maintained ties with secret offshore firms to make its business.

In April, the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung exposed the alleged involvement of the world's wealthy and influential people including a number of former and current leaders, in offshore schemes by publishing materials it claimed came from Mossack Fonseca, a Panama firm selling offshore companies.

Mossack Fonseca responded to the April report by refusing to validate the information contained in the leaks and accused reporters of gaining unauthorized access to some of its proprietary documents.
