Reporters, researchers and citizens from around the world flocked to the massive interactive ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database after the ICIJ, a project of the Center for Public Integrity, opened the database to the public on Saturday morning.

The group originally began probing the cache of documents in April, which led to exposures of prominent public figures using the offshore tax havens (see Documents Shed Light on Widespread Use of Tax Havens). The ICIJ analyzed a computer hard drive packed with corporate data, personal information and emails. The information came to light when ICIJ director Gerard Ryle investigated a financial scandal in Australia involving offshore tax havens and corporate fraud.

The ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database allows users to search through more than 100,000 secret companies, trusts and funds created in offshore locales including the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands and Singapore. The data are part of a cache of 2.5 million leaked files ICIJ analyzed with 112 journalists in 58 countries. The Offshore Leaks web app was developed by La Nacion newspaper in Costa Rica for ICIJ. Since April 3, ICIJ’s stories based on the database have prompted high-profile resignations, including a prominent Austrian banker, increased discussion of tax-haven policies in the European Union, and triggered official investigations in the Philippines, India, Greece and South Korea.

Is your name is on this list?


The Offshore Leaks Database holds the names of more than 100,000 offshore companies, trusts and funds created in locations from Singapore to the Cayman Islands.

Think twice before you do a search though. Just because you're paranoid it doesn't mean they're not trying to get you! Wink
