The leak of the Pandora Papers is the largest leak that has been recorded. Over 12 million files between world leaders and off-shore companies, showing hidden wealth and dealings of world leaders, politicians, and billionaires.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Jordan’s King Abdullah Il bin Al-Hussein are among 35 current and former leaders linked to the files.
Documents say that Jordan’s king has spent £70 million on a property empire in the UK and the US since taking power in 1999.
Other leaders involved are the Czech Prime Minister, Kenyan President, Chile’s President, and Azerbaijan’s President.
The Czech prime minister has said the allegations are an attempt to influence elections being held this week, and has insisted he has done nothing illegal.
