A cache of 2.5
million files has cracked open the secrets of more than 120,000 offshore
companies and trusts, exposing hidden dealings of politicians, con men and the
mega-rich the world over.

The secret
records obtained by the International Consortium
of Investigative Journalists
lay bare the names behind covert companies and
private trusts in the British Virgin Islands, the Cook Islands and other
offshore hideaways.

They include
American doctors and dentists and middle-class Greek villagers as well as
families and associates of long-time despots, Wall Street swindlers, Eastern
European and Indonesian billionaires, Russian corporate executives, international
arms dealers and a sham-director-fronted company that the European Union has
labeled as a cog in Iran’s nuclear-development program.
