It follows the widely reported WikiLeaks-style release of documents, “revealing the closely guarded investment information of more than 100,000 people around the world, including hundreds of Canadians.”
“We are an independent reporting organization, served by and serving our members, the global investigative journalism community and the public, it says.
“One of the many reactions from our series on offshore tax havens has been government agencies from Germany, Greece, South Korea, Canada and the U.S. asking for access to the 2.5 million files that form the basis of our reporting.”
