Some big names and faces are immerging in the Panama Papers leak. We will probably discover the fate of John Snow or who died on the The Walking Dead finale before we know what punishment will go along with each exposed person/business. It is creating a global shake up.
Most of the names make me cheer but one person on the list made me a bit sad. It appears the Jackie Chan has at least 10 shell companies set up overseas. He has not yet made a public statement about his involvement. Another celebrity name to come up is Spanish film director Pedro Almodóvar. Almodóvar’s brother has stated that the foreign investment was a poor business decision made when Almodóvar was rising in international fame and ended in 1994 when they had a better understanding of what the investment was and they are sorry.
French extreme right racist leader Marine Le Pen is named and the irony as the French Nationalist leader is wonderful. In the UK David Cameron stepped away from the pig he was abusing to issue a statement that he had no investments in his name overseas and when asked if his family did he stated that that was “private”.
The Ukraine and Pakistani leaders join the Icelandic PM with crowds calling for their resignation. There surely will be more fall out to come.
