Description

Secrecy for Sale made front page news around the globe, including in the U.K., the United States, Switzerland, Germany, France, China, and Russia. Also known as the “Offshore Leaks” investigation, it sparked official investigations around Europe, Asia, Australia, and in North and South America, and several high-profile resignations. It prompted the French president to call for the eradication of tax havens, the UK prime minister to announce—alongside the U.S. President—that the two nations had agreed to “tackle the scourge of tax havens,” and EU officials to say it “transformed” tax politics in Europe. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, a project of the Center for Public Integrity, struck a blow for transparency against one of the world's most important and contentious public issues—tax havens and the illicit flow of money around the globe.
