    This data leak might trigger a scandal in the dimension of a bomb.

    @Marc

    I found that video hard to watch. :( In fact, I didn't watch it all the through. What some companies/individuals are willing to do to other people, and especially children, for money makes me sick.

    Think that whenever I thought of Swiss bank accounts (and similar), I just associated them will tax evasion. Never considered the money laundering aspect, nor the source of ill-gotten gains.

    Re the interactive chart, I went to check and see if any Canadians were there. Thankfully, no.

    That's just the reality on the blue planet :(

    I think it's only the beginning, the tip of the iceberg. Who knows what else will be revealed - if it is not hidden again by the powerful.
    Somehow one has it always suspected. Now it's fact.

    Made a mistake with the headline. Should have better written
    Huge Data Leak Reveals Tax Havens of 140 Politicians
    Have to get better with my headlines.
