Not much so far. Many of the small number of people named don’t have Panamanian companies but rather BVI ones etc. HoweverIt’s going to take a while to sort that lot out.
a) “There are about 3,500 shareholders of offshore companies who list U.S. addresses” These are the ones most likely to turn out actually to be Americans…not guaranteed though.It’s perhaps a smidge less likely that this lot are fronting Americans. Anyone who wants to put USD in the States could be a candidate; in the past that has included people like Tymoshenko of Ukraine, and lately, as we know, lotsa Brazilians (Miami Herald coverage). Organised crime is another possibility.
b) “almost 3,100 companies are tied to offshore professionals based in Miami, New York and other parts of the United States”
