The founders of the law firm Mossack Fonseca, Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca Mora

The money-laundering trials of 27 employees of Mossack Fonseca, the defunct law firm at the center of the Panama Papers case, has begun in Panama.

I joined Dublin NewsTalk’s Pat Kenny Show on Wednesday to explain the Panama Papers, more than 11 million documents given by a whistle-blower to journalists in 2016, which detailed the accounts set up by Mossack Fonseca for clients to move their money offshore.

In the 12-minute discussion, I outline the exact charges over two cases, one involving “dirty money” in Argentina and one over a transnational businessman and bribery; the alleged role of Mossack Fonseca; and the position of financial institutions and politicians who were identified in the Papers.
