The recent leaking of the Panama Papers has forced resignations and ended political careers around the world, revealing how many of the rich and powerful use foreign entities to hide money.

So when our own Prime Minister is found named in the leaked records it’s time to sit up and take notice.

According to, the papers reveal that Mr Turnbull was a former director of a British Virgin Islands company created by Mossack Fonseca, the law firm at the centre of the scandal, in the 1990s.

There is no suggestion that Mr Turnbull himself has done anything illegal or inappropriate. However, it could prove to be a serious headache for his election campaign moving forward.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister told Fairfax that Mr Turnbull was not aware the company was administered by the law firm.

Both Mr Turnbull and former NSW Premier Neville Wran joined the board of Star Mining NL in 1993. Both resigned two years later.

More news will be provided as it breaks.

  1. Not at the least surprised but, please do name all the other Australian politicians on the Panama list, irrespective of whether they called in for amnesty or not from ATO. (Did you know you can negotiate amnesty with ATO?)

  2. Who cares, WAS is the important word here, and over 20 yrs ago. Stop muck rakeing. Our country was in the black before Labor got in and put us into the red again.

  3. No evidence of wrong doing so just a labor beat up for the next 8 weeks. He explained there was no money made by the company involved , but that wont stop Wong going on and on like she has today in the media.

    Labor want to hope and prey none of their names get a mention, will it all be a thing of the past just like when they went for B Bishop and when it was revealed T Burke was getting family holidays paid for by us it was SHUT UP time quick smart.

  4. nothing to do with labor. fact is a company director and he did not know? what a load of rot. and he just laughs about it…?
    NOW if it was Labor in the Panama papers hell would break loose.
