Panama leaks


First government hit by the tax evasion scandal is Iceland's. Prime minister is out and though for now the previous party coalition continues in power, there's a cry for elections.

Besides politicians, UEFA has trouble with the revelations, as if they didn't have enough by now.

Interesting to see where all this goes.

And Putin is telling us this is a plot against Russia...

Re: Panama leaks


This thing has brought up a nasty little example that you can't take for granted some rights even in the best of countries. Finland is (so far) only western country where tax officials are trying to pressure media - in our case public broadcasting - to give up protection of sources and hand over information.
And though journalists themselves, as well as few MPs (mainly ones with such professional background) have commented this to be inappropriate, the issue hasn't caught much attention.

And Finland was just recently named by a study the #1 country in freedom of press...
