What are the Paradise Papers? (The Guardian)

According to the latest information available, the names of at least 62 Mexican citizens have been listed in relation to the Paradise Papers, a series of financial documents obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and investigated by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

Entrepreneurs, moguls, politicians, celebrities, and even two football players of the Mexican National Football Team are seemingly involved in the current tax evasion scandal.

On this matter, the Minister of Finance and Public Credit José Antonio Meade has clarified that “it's not illegal to have money outside of Mexico, what's wrong is not to declare it.”

The documents leaked belonged, mainly, to the law firm Appleby, which helps corporations, financial institutions, and high-net-worth individuals establish companies in offshore jurisdictions.

So far, several prominent figures worldwide have been exposed, including members of the British royalty and companies such as Uber.
