This database is powered by Neo4j, a graph database engine that structures data in nodes (the icons you see in the visualization) and edges (the links between nodes). To make this data easily accessible to everyone, regardless of the technical resources at their disposal, ICIJ have converted our original database into several CSV files, one per type of node and one for all the edges. You may download an archive of all these files here.

Please bear in mind that the archive is large, and it costs ICIJ every time you download this file, so if you know how to use BitTorrent, ICIJ encourage you to use it with their official torrent file. ICIJ’ll be making the Neo4j data download available soon.

What is Mossack Fonseca?
It is a law firm of Panama which works around selling anonymous offshore companies across the world. It helps in hiding promoters their business details. The firm has many offices around the globe. As of now, it has dealt with numerous companies which they have founded, sold, and managed others. It has mainly worked in cities like Zurich, London, Hong Kong, and others.

Mossack Fonseca has sold many anonymous companies for a tiny amount of about $1000. If any client provides any extra fee, the company provides fake (sham) director and moreover, it can conceal the identity of the true shareholder if the clients wish. Thus, the law firm is in the business of hiding and withholding the true identity of offshore company’s owner.

    How can this be the full 2.6 to download when the torrent is only 125 mb? Where can I download the entire thing?

    • Steven Lembart on

      As of now, we don’t have the complete data. We will update the article as soon as we receive any information.

      • Margot Chabanon on

        would love to have the full documents if there is anywhere to download it, im ready to have all of them packed in a 3tb drive

        • You will never get it because they dont want the truth to get out the truth that they are manipulating you and fabricating the truth so it will fit their agenda

    • Michael Khan on

      This seems to be a graph of the connections between the people and companies involved not the entire corpus of documents.

    • It seems that China gov has done a pretty job. I cannoy find anything on domistic webside QWQ

    • Bai and Kai are at the top of the corruption pile in Fiji . But they are not alone. Many of their business cronies make up the population of the corrupt in Fiji.

  2. I strongly suggest to add hash signatures (MD5 or better) to the downloads. I can only imagine that many would want to manipulate that data set.

  3. The offshoreleaks is old data from 2013, nothing to do with Panama papers. there is something at documentcloud, around 190 documents, thats all for today

    Just read your post on Panama papers. Thanks for the links.

    Great work. I work on a project where people get together to review the best resources to figure out the 10 best links to understand an issue.

    We created a collection of resources to understand the Panama issue. I think it will be a great value for your readers, knowledgemaps.org/learning-journey/1049/uncovering-panama-all-about-the-panama-papers-leak .
