    "...with the most recent documents dating to December 2016."
    They may want to reconfigure their NTP settings as well... :)

    Isn't Messi still being investigated for tax evasion? That could sting a bit. :lol:

    Seems to me a very CLEAR message that should be listened to is that there are very GOOD people out there willing to uncover/reveal/whistleblow/hack and let the world's GOOD and HUMANE population know about the DIRTY CROOKS among us.

    I applaud this leak.
    :clap:

    just shows power corrupts and ultimate power corrupts ultimately.

    Nice to see a data breech that isn't targeted at us normal plebs for once.

    Why do i get the feeling though that nothing much will come of this, can data that's obtained illegally be used as evidence.

    EDIT: Unless I'm mistaken Panorama is going to cover this tonight at 7:30 on BBC 1.

    If somebody else leaked it into the public domain and you just happened to read it, you didn't do anything illegal to obtain it did you?

    Doesn't really matter, most of the people in this leak are either corpses or untouchable anyway. The whole world knows Mr Putin and chums are making themselves multi billionaires off the back of stolen state funds, knowing a few more details won't stop them.

    Although the not-quite revelations about one Mr Ian Cameron have been fun reading.

    Yea, no you didn't do anything illegal but i was thinking more along the lines of whether it could be used in legal proceedings or something more than just reputational damage.

    Doesn't matter, tax laws have so many holes they make sieves look like steel reinforced concrete walls.

    True. Chances are most of it is done legally. If anything it's just a massive how to manual for bean counters.
