MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A meeting of the special investigating group devoted to the newly posted Panama Papers online database, which includes at least 149 Polish names, is underway on Tuesday in Warsaw, local media reported.
On Monday, the International Consortium of Independent Journalists (ICIJ) published documents on 320,000 offshore accounts that were leaked from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca.
In April, the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung exposed the alleged involvement of the world's wealthy elite, including a number of former and current leaders, in offshore schemes by publishing information it claimed came from Mossack Fonseca.
Initially, the Panama Papers database contained three Poles — Pawel Piskorski, the former mayor of Warsaw and two major entrepreneurs Mariusz Walter and Marek Profus. The broadcaster noted that the newly released list of 146 names are less significant, although some are connected to the two richest Poles Ryszard Krauze and Zbigniew Jakubas.
