Charlie Hebdo Releases a Cover with a Cartoon About the Offshore Scandal
The issue of the magazine with this cover hit the shelves on April 6, 2016.
Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical weekly, posted a cover of the new issue featuring ‘Panama leaks’, the unprecedented leak of a huge data set that was obtained by the world’s media and shed light of offshore schemes involving dozens of politicians, on the magazine’s Facebook page.
The cartoon is titled ‘Fiscal Terror’, and depicts several people who seem to have become the ‘victims’ of the leak, who hold signs saying “Je Suis Panama” and “They won’t change our way of life”.
More than 11 million documents that were leaked to the journalists come from Mossack Fonseca, a legal company that helped its clients launder money and evade sanctions and taxes.
