PANAMA: JUDGE ACQUITS KEY FIGURES IN MOSSACK FONSECA/PANAMA PAPERS SCANDAL

On 16 June, Infobaie and others reported that a Panamanian court has provisionally dismissed Ramon Fonseca and Jürgen Mossack, founders of the now-defunct law firm linked to the hack known as the “Panama Papers” involving Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht, and 39 others investigated for alleged money laundering crimes in the case.  It is claimed that the Prosecutor’s Office “did not demonstrate which accounts were created in Panama, created with the purpose of hiding money of illicit origin, nor the amounts of money entered from offshore companies”.
