Panama Papers: Police raid offices of Mossack Fonseca in Salvador

El Salvador

In El Salvador, police have raided the local offices of Mossack Fonseca, the company exposed in the “Panama Papers” leaks.

Officials said they were looking for evidence of Salvadoran citizens who had accounts with them

“I want to ask those people, lawyers and law firms that provide services to these companies, to not make any mistakes. We are going to call them and we are going to request information and we’ll meet with them. I hope that they will not make the mistake of hiding any information,” said Attorney General of El Salvador Douglas Meléndez
