"Some 20 computers will be seized from the office of Mossack Fonseca, as well as documentation, according to FGR [attorney general of El Salvador]," LPG Judicial, the judicial information section of El Salvador’s La Prensa Grafica daily said via Twitter.
El Salvador’s Attorney General Douglas Melendez oversaw one of the raids, according to photos posted by LPG Judicial on Twitter.
Earlier this month, the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung exposed the alleged involvement of a number of former and current world leaders in offshore schemes by publishing materials it claimed came from Mossack Fonseca.
Mossack Fonseca has refused to validate the information contained in the leaks and accused reporters of gaining unauthorized access to its proprietary documents. It warned that using unlawfully-obtained data was a crime that it would not hesitate to punish by legal means.
