That same year, 1986, according to the Panama Papers, Mossack learned he was involved in a front company for men who had robbed 3.5 tons of gold—£26 million at the time, and more now—from a Brink’s-Mat depot near London’s Heathrow Airport in 1983.

Mainstream media shrink their journalistic teams while increasing the staff of commercial departments. Big investigations only last a few days and journalists censor themselves and are aware of damaging the interests of companies who are advertised in their media outlets. Stories go through new kinds of legal checks which don’t aim at the proper documentation of every element of the story but the elimination of every potentially “dangerous” claim. Lawsuits for slander and claims for skyrocketing compensations (often of biggest value than the entire medium) become a huge iron ball, chained at the feet of journalists who hope that no one will push them into the sea.

The Panama Papers revelation differs radically from any other massive leak until today. For the first time, the data are not the picture of a moment. They allow for the systematic and analytical research of the economic model and its evolution during the past 50 years. The leak consists of 11.5 million documents dating from 1977 until the final days of 2015 and so for the first time (supposedly) we have at our disposal all the necessary tools to reveal a true global conspiracy: that of the rich at the expense of the poor.

On November 1, 2010 at noon, at the office of Alan Rusbridger, inside the building of the British Guardian in London, the first massive clash between the “old” and the “new” journalism happened. It was the day Julian Assange broke the links between Wikileaks and traditional media. Until that point, the brilliant organization of the Australian, waving the flag for transparency with the moto “we open governments” was under the illusion that cooperation with media dinosaurs would work mutually beneficially.

Wikileaks has matured since then. It has changed its strategy and its new dogma includes full disclosure knowing that if someone controls the flow of the information, in reality, they find themselves at the same ethical level as someone who hides information.

That was precisely my strong disagreement with Wikileaks when back in the elections year 2012, Alexis Papahelas handled the publication of the Greek part of Cable Gate through his TV show „Neoi Fakeloi“ (New Folders). He held documents that, depending on the timing of their publication, could affect the election results. Finally, Wikileaks decided to publish all the GableGate and then we learnt that Alexis Papahelas show had been receiving instructions from the American Embassy on how to report in order to better promote American positions.

Jürgen Mossack is a German immigrant whose father sought a new life in Panama for his family after serving in Hitler’s Waffen-SS during World War II. Ramón Fonseca is an award-winning novelist who has worked in recent years as an adviser to Panama’s president. He took a leave of absence as presidential adviser in March after his firm was implicated in the Brazil scandal and ICIJ and its partners began to ask questions about the law firm’s practices.
