The number of Vietnamese companies and individuals linked to the Panama Papers and 2013 Offshore Leaks has jumped to 189 after the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), along with Sudetendeutsche Zeitung, released more data to the public.

The leaked files have so far revealed 19 Vietnamese companies that set up offshore companies with the help of Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca. Most of them have registered businesses in the British Virgin Islands.

Data shows that 185 business operating addresses in Vietnam are linked to Mossack Fonseca through 23 intermediaries.

However it is not clear who are behind these offshore companies and which individuals are exactly involved from Vietnam.

Panama Papers leak, the largest in journalistic history, have exposed many world’s political leaders and global elites that used Mossack Fonseca’s services to secretly move and hide massive sums of wealth.
