Over 100 news organisations across the globe dropped simultaneous investigations into a massive leak of data belonging to a Panamanian firm, Mossack Fonseca, on Sunday. The leak revealed that the firm, which specialises in establishing shell corporations for the world’s ultra-wealthy – including major world leaders and their associates – hides their money.

The leak is one of the biggest ever. There are 11.5 million documents and 2.6 terabytes of information drawn from Mossack Fonseca’s internal database.

Social media, as always, was unforgiving and the digital space was flooded with cartoons on the Panama papers leak in no time.
