ICIJ probe: List of Indians in tax havens

There are 612 Indians on the list exposed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists for offshore investments and secret financial transactions. The ICIJ has now developed a global database of such companies and individuals.

These databases were parts of two larger separated databases that had been fed for nearly30 years by two companies: Singapore-based Portcullis TrustNet (PTN), and Commonwealth Trust Limited (CTL), based in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

Both firms specialise in setting up offshore financial structures. They have helped tens of thousands of people create offshore companies and trusts, as well as hard-to-trace bank accounts.

The data were obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which chose The Investigative Unit at La Nacion to process it and to develop the interactive application of the most ambitious cross-border investigative project in history.
