In a major international investigation, Four Corners reveals the secrets of the Pandora Papers. For months, more than 600 journalists from around the world, including the ABC, the Washington Post and the BBC, have been working with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists on this top-secret investigation. One of the biggest data leaks in history, the papers reveal how the wealthy and powerful are continuing to use offshore tax havens to hide their ownership of assets and stash their cash – despite attempts to rein the industry in.
After the Panama Papers scandal, the next big leak was already on its way; the Pandora Papers. With 11.9 million documents, it even exceeds the former in scope. Hundreds of names of influential people have been exposed, and they all have tax havens as a common denominator. In short; the hidden wealth is public and this documentary shows how people nowadays still prefer to keep their capital somewhere it can’t be found.
