After the 2016 Panama Papers and the 2017 Paradise Papers, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has released another set of more than 200,000 documents relating to offshore activities, dubbed the ‘Mauritius Leaks‘, last week. According to the ICIJ, the documents ‘offer a rare window into corporate tax avoidance in countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.’ .

The documents originate from the Mauritius office of Conyers Dill & Pearman, an international law firm specialising in offshore services. They include emails, contracts and business plans which reveal alleged attempts by corporations and individuals to exploit tax rules that allow them to avoid taxes of such countries as Egypt, Mozambique and Thailand.
