Bernie Sanders attacks billionaires and firms exposed by Paradise Papers – live
Massive leak of secret documents shared with Guardian and other news organisations shows how world’s biggest businesses and leading politicians have sheltered their wealth in tax havens
My colleagues Ed Pilkington and David Harris have a full report here on remarks made by Bernie Sanders, who came in a close second to Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination last year, on the Paradise Papers.
Sanders that the world is rapidly becoming an “international oligarchy” controlled by a tiny number of billionaires.
Republic, the UK campaign group that advocates the abolition of the monarchy, has seized on the publication of the Paradise Papers to promote its cause. The Queen’s private estate invested millions of pounds in a Cayman Islands fund as part of an offshore portfolio revealed in the documents.
