    Lol. No surprise. But don't you think you should take something with a pinch grain of salt?

    Can any of this information be used to prosecute?
    Seriously, just read what's on the BBC. The information is there.

    I cant see anything in the link which says whether the leaks can be used for prosecutions.

    I didn't just say the OP's link. See below:

    "One wealthy client, US millionaire and life coach Marianna Olszewski, was offered fake ownership records to hide money from the authorities. This is in direct breach of international regulations designed to stop money-laundering and tax evasion."

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-35918844

    With 11 million documents to analyse it will take some time for prosecutors to work out who is culpable for what (and where they can be tried), but if the above was an isolated case I would be very surprised.
