The offices of the firm at the centre of the Panama Papers revelations were raided by police officers on Tuesday. Panama’s attorney general ordered the raid on Mossack Fonseca in an attempt to “establish the use of the firm for illicit activities”.  The raid comes after the leak of the company’s huge database which provoked international concern about the offshore industry. Mossack Fonseca has denied any wrongdoing, saying it only set up offshore financial accounts and anonymous shell companies for clients and was not involved in how those accounts were used. However, the firm said it would continue to cooperate with investigators.
