Pama City, May 7: The anonymous whistleblower who revealed millions of documents belonging to Pamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, causing a worldwide stir, has denied working for any government or intelligence agency, and said the decision to share the data was not for any political purpose.
“I do not work for any government or intelligence agency, and I never have. My viewpoint is entirely my own, as was my decision to share the documents, not for any specific political purpose,” the source, “John Doe”, said in a manifesto published in the German daily Suddeutsche Zeitung.
Speaking for the first time, Doe said he revealed the documents “because I understood enough about their contents to realise the scale of the injustices they described”. He shared the data with Suddeutsche Zeitung and the Intertiol Consortium of Investigative Jourlists (ICIJ) that led to an enormous stir all over the globe.
In India, The Indian Express newspaper collaborated with the investigation.
Politicians and functiories had to resign, there were public protests, and the stories led to raids and investigations in dozens of countries due to the 11.5 million leaked documents med ‘Pama Papers’.
“I decided to expose Mossack Fonseca because I thought it should answer for its role in these crimes, only some of which have come to light thus far. It will take years, possibly decades, for the full extent of the firm’s sordid acts to become known,” Doe said. (IANS)
