PASSPORT MYSTERY: JAPANESE MEN DISCOVER THEY ARE COMPANY REPS OF DATING WEBSITES IN NEW PANAMA PAPERS LEAK

The South China Morning Post on 21st June reported that leaked files show passports of at least 4 Japanese nationals were used for identification when the offshore companies were established.  The companies involved operated Japanese-language dating websites and were registered in Anguilla and apparently used the names of Japanese people without their permission to dodge responsibility in case of trouble.  3 of the 4 Japanese said they had nothing to do with the offshore companies, but all had travelled to Thailand over recent years.  The fourth person could not be contacted.
