PANAMA CITY: The state prosecutor’s office in Panama said Monday it will launch an investigation into revelations contained in a massive data leak of a law firm that created offshore companies for the world’s rich and powerful.
“The facts described in national and international communication media publications under the term ‘Panama Papers’ will be the subject of criminal investigation,” the office said in a statement.
The probe will aim to establish what crimes might have taken place and who committed them, as well as identifying possible financial damages, it said.
The law firm involved, Mossack Fonseca, says the leak of 11.5 million documents from its servers was the result of a “limited hack,” suggesting it believed an outside party was responsible.

In Pakistani Cricket Team there has always been a hitch with the openers specially after Saeed Anwar and Amir Sohail left in 90’s. We still have not been able to fabricate consistent batsmen in the mean while Ahmed Shehzad ,Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed came to the spotlight churning an expectation for us but then their efforts also failed to make an impression as they sparkled in one match and drabbed in the other. This is the only rationale for the downfall of Pakistani cricket and the loss which the team suffered in the recent tournaments.
Pakistan finally got such an attacking opener Sharjeel Khan few years back. Sharjeel made T20 debut against Afghanistan in 2013 and performed well in first 3 games as he also scored a fifty against Sri Lanka. Unfortunately he was dropped by selectors from T20 team on the basis of his performances in ODI Cricket, although he is T20 specialist.
