Bimbo Osobe from Nigeria was forced from her home in a slum in Lagos, one of thousands displaced in connection with a World Bank-funded project in the city. This week she came to Washington, D.C. to confront the bank, just as a new report on involuntary resettlement linked to World Bank projects was released: 
Forced displacement is one of the most common and intractable harms caused by World Bank projects, a new report has found.

Busy times continue at ICIJ! Our #PanamaPapers investigation has exposed the offshore holdings of some of the world's most rich and powerful people, and the offshore financial links to some of the globe's biggest scandals. There's plenty more to explore (and more still to come) at http://panamapapers.icij.org:

Really interesting read on what might be an unexpected trend for many people - is America the world's new favorite tax haven? 
Moving money out of the usual offshore secrecy havens and into the U.S. is a brisk new business.

“#LuxLeaks could not have happened if it was not for the whistleblower and the team of investigative journalists. The two worked very well together to change the momentum of the debate about corporate taxation in Europe,” the European Union's competition commissioner said in a recent interview. Nevertheless, two whistleblowers and ICIJ member journalist Edouard Perrin have been charged by Luxembourg authorities and will face trial in April. 
Belgium has been ordered to recover $765 million in unpaid taxes from 35 multinational companies in the latest ruling against corporate tax breaks.

New story from ICIJ today: Following the resignation of Iceland's prime minister over Panama Papers, the country's president announced he would run for a record sixth term as president to help stability return. The president was asked on CNN whether he or his wife had any offshore accounts, to which he answered "No, no, no, no, no." But secret Swiss Leaks and Panama Papers records show that the First Lady has extensive links to the offshore world 
Records in Panama Papers and Swiss Leaks files tie the wife of Iceland President Ólafur Grímsson to offshore companies and accounts

Want to dive deeper into the data behind the #PanamaPapers? On May 9, ICIJ will publish a database with all the offshore entity information from the Panama Papers, including details on companies, trusts, foundations and funds incorporated in 21 tax havens, from Hong Kong to Nevada in the United States. Here's what you can expect: 
The database, to be released on May 9, will likely be the largest ever release of secret offshore companies and the people behind them.

Уважаемые господа! Изучив и сопоставив материалы (факты похищения валютных средств коррупции, использование сети SWIFT и физические объёмы полученных документов) консорциума журналистов-расследователей OCCRP замечу: организованная преступность (мафия) аналогичные приёмы мошенничества с целью подрыва экономики государства впервые в мире применяли при похищении денежных средств на всей территории СССР – России в начале 90-х годов и мною проводилась прокурорская проверка и была выявлена причина не эффективного расследования.
При всём уважении к титаническому объему трудозатрат журналистов, и ЦРУ США (CIA USA) усматриваю нехватку в расследовании компетентного профессионала в совмещённых специальностях разведывательной и контрразведывательной деятельности, следователя и прокурора (с практикой публичных успешных выступлений в качестве государственного обвинителя по государственным преступлениям, включая по делам о шпионаже) с достаточным опытом в выявлении экономических преступлений, терактов и убийств при их организации должностными лицами для их последующего изобличения с конфискацией обнаруженных активов в доход США и заинтересованных государств.
Мне будет интересно и возможно на контрактной основе оказать практическую помощь в расследовании выявленных фактов поскольку именно совмещаю отмеченные знания и практику, неоднократно по ряду уголовных дел, в том числе по уголовному делу "Золото КПСС", применил на практике "моделирование в расследовании преступлений должностных лиц", принял успешное участие в работе ЮНЕСКО (2005 г., Париж, Франция) и т.д.. При всём к уважении к OCCRP, сотрудникам органов власти США, но не имеющих практических навыков в названном "моделировании", в расследовании и в доказывании сложных должностных и иных особо опасных преступлений на практике, даже очень талантливым, полагаю будет невозможно осуществить всестороннее и полное и быстрое достижение задачи по установлению истины и убедительному уголовному судопроизводству и компенсации ущерба США, но и заинтересованным странам.
Предполагаю, моё участие в данном международном расследовании будет формировать взаимное доверие, положительное сближение понимания и человеческого спокойствия наших народов о необходимости формирования такого Правительства в деятельности которого факты коррупции и назревания необоснованного военного противостояния - будут исключены, а равно случаи ошибочной интерпретации фактов.

How does the offshore world work? Should you open that bank account in Switzerland, or start a company in Belize instead? How can you hide your name when the tax collector comes knocking? Pick a character and play our Stairway to Tax Heaven game to find out (and don't get caught!): https://panamapapers.icij.org/stairway_tax_heaven_game/

Finance ministers in the EU agreed to a new rule this week that will force companies to report revenue, profit, taxes paid and the number of people employed to the tax authorities in every European country where they operate. The EU hopes this will help curb corporate tax avoidance of the type ICIJ uncovered with its LuxLeaks investigation. But transparency campaigners say it's not enough - they want the information released to the public. What do you think? 
Multinational companies operating in Europe will be required to report profits, taxes and activities on a country-by-country basis.

Did you know more than half of Manhattan real estate sales over $5 million dollars (luxury/high-end property) in 2014 were to shell companies? The US government is now planning on cracking down on anonymous property deals in a bid to curb what it fears may be a popular method of money laundering. ICIJ investigated links between the offshore world and luxury New York real estate back in 2014. Read more about the latest news here: 
Investigators will identify and track secret buyers of high-end properties to crack down on a popular method of money laundering.

Family drama, fights over inheritance, a huge art collection, a long list of luxury assets and allegations of tax evasion have combined in one of France's biggest ever tax fraud trials this week. Beyond the celebrity aspects, the case is also likely to reveal much about the secretive world of art trading and the importance offshore tax havens play in hiding and moving assets: https://www.icij.org/blog/2016/01/art-worlds-offshore-links-star-trial-missing-millions
The trial of a renowned art-dealer accused of tax fraud worth $600 million will reveal much about the secretive world of art trading and collecting.
