CJS Seminar - The Pandora Papers: Legal and Social Implications
From Iain Mcgee
The Pandora Papers
Dr Leopoldo Parada, University of Leeds, School of Law
Dr Parada discusses his role in the investigation and analysis of a set of documents relating to the movement of property and money, particularly through offshore companies.
The Pandora Papers follow the earlier release of the Panama and Paradise papers. While there are some points at which the most recent release of papers reveal, or suggest, connections with criminal activity, they more often relate to legal ways of transferring assets to avoid taxation or to obscure ownership.
Students should gain a basic familiarity with the investigations by accessing the following sites:
