Pandora Papers


The Guardian, in a shared access partnership, published the Pandora Papers in October 2021, the biggest ever leak of offshore data (11.9m documents). The leak exposed secret offshore accounts of 35 world leaders, including current and former heads of state and Government, and more than 100 billionaires, celebrities and business leaders.

The Guardian led the investigation in the UK, along with BBC Panorama, publishing stories based on leaked documents after considering public interest.

The articles shone a spotlight on issues of important public debate, shed light on how the offshore industry operates and helped inform voters about politicians or donors in the interests of democratic accountability.

In the UK, it sparked questions at the Tory conference about the role of offshore donors.
