In addition to Russia’s Vladimir Putin, France’s upstart “far right” political leader Marine Le Pen has fallen victim to the selective revelations of the Panama Papers. British businessman Arron Banks, slotted to replace Nigel Farage as the leader of the UK Independence Party, has also taken heat.

On Monday, Le Pen cited the papers selectively “leaked” by a Soros, Rockefeller and Rothschild funded “investigative journalism” outfit, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. “The control-free movement of men, goods and capital, coupled with high finance’s stranglehold on all levels of the economy, can only produce global fraudulent and money-laundering systems,” she said.

The left-center French newspaper Le Monde followed up Le Pen’s remarks by publishing an account implicating her close friends and family members in a tax evasion scheme operated out of a shell company in Hong Kong. The Le Monde story says Frédéric Chatillon, a long time friend of Le Pen, was responsible for moving €300,000 into the offshore haven. Chatillon took to his Facebook page and argued the operation is entirely legal.

The political establishment in France was dealt a blow in December when the populist and anti-EU National Front made unexpected election gains, particularly in Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie where Le Pen won 40.6% of the vote. The previous year the party received 4,712,461 votes in the European Parliament election, finishing first with 24.86% of the vote and 24 of France’s 74 seats. France’s Socialist party appealed to the center-right Les Républicains to cobble together a bipartisan alliance capable of defeating Le Pen, but the effort was opposed by former President Nicolas Sarkozy.
