ICIJ Documents Reveal Qatari Royals Linked to Offshore Firms


Posted: June 1st, 2017


In 2016 the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists published the Panama Papers, a massive trove of 11.5 million leaked documents from a controversial Panamanian law firm called Mossack Fonseca, which specialized in setting up corporate vehicles in offshore jurisdictions for their wealthy clients. The Panama Papers exposed 140 politicians from more than 50 countries connected to offshore companies in 21 tax havens.  The ICIJ’s reporting on the Panama Papers recently won a Pulitzer Prize.


The Panama Papers


The ICIJ has provided a full database of the papers’ contents, and DE-Tenants.org has begun pouring over the leaked data. We quickly discovered many members of the Qatari royal family “ Al Thani” among the data. The Al Thanis hold interests in corporate entities based in offshore jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and Panama. The family also controls the Qatar Investment Authority.

Using the ICIJ’s reporting, DE-Tenants.org has been able to gather additional information to supplement the ICIJ’s findings. We will be publishing those findings imminently. However, for today we will merely recap our starting point by publishing a list of corporate officers bearing the name “Al Thani” from the ICIJ data. We found 20 distinct officers and 24 corporations. The corporate officers include the former Emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and the former Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, among others.
