Summary Leaked documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca-- now known as the Panama Papers-- detail how shell companies operate, how they allow the superwealthy and celebrities to escape taxes, and how they provide cover for illicit activities on a massive scale by crime bosses and corrupt politicians across the globe.
