Earlier this week, the first major consequence from the leaked Panama Papers occurred when they revealed that Iceland’s Prime Minister was a client who had used the Mossack Fonseca law firm to create an offshore account which hid his assets from sovereign regulation. And as a result, protests from the Icelandic people forced the PM to resign from office.
The significance of this leak is that what Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson did by offshoring his wealth was not illegal, but only perceived as such in a world where income inequality has helped divide the rich and poor, and obfuscate truth from reality.
Yet perhaps what is most relevant, and not widely mentioned by the mainstream media, is that the controlled disclosure of certain individuals tied to the Panama Papers may actually be an attempted attack on persons who have or are in opposition to the banking cabal, and the elites who are trying to create a global fascist construct. Case in point, Iceland had rebelled against the banks who had burdened the country with onerous debts, and even jailed several bankers for their criminal activities, with Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson having been a key element in the nation’s rejection of ECB demands.
