The Panama Papers leak has been in the news for quite some time now. The stashing of sizeable funds abroad, with the presumed notion of safety, is an old phenomenon. However, other such financial irregularities have happened in the past years and have been overlooked or not pursued by the relevant authorities.
Huge amounts of money was transferred via non-official channels to countries like Malaysia and Canada. A good number of politicians belonging to all the parties, high ranking bureaucrats, industrialists, traders, professionals, etc. reaped the benefits of the 'black facilities'.
We draw the attention of the government to these concerns and urge it to act accordingly and immediately.
