The Panama and Paradise Papers


On March 26th We had the pleasure of organizing and hosting an event with investigative journalist Frederik Obermaier. Obermaier is best known for the Panama Papers Leak which is one of the largest data leaks to this day. The leak exposed links between well known figures around the world and their dealings in offshore accounts.

The talk was lead by Jean West and Obermaier guided us through the process, intricacies, and background of the Panama and Paradise paper leaks. From the story behind meeting “John Doe” and assembling the team of 400+ investigative journalists to the aftermath, Obermaier discusses the dangerous story that he and the team of investigative journalists are a part of.
