Documents dubbed the ‘Panama Papers’ have revealed the names of over 200 US residents who used the services of Panamanian firm Mossack Fonseca. Among them are several businessmen charged with financial crimes, or already convicted of wrongdoing.

Some of the names on the list appear to be retired Americans seeking to buy real estate in Panama and Costa Rica, according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the US-based group that is publishing revelations from the documents obtained by an anonymous hacker in 2015.

Initial revelations by ICIJ have sought to implicate celebrities and politicians across the world. It has since emerged that Mossack Fonseca had registered over 1,000 businesses in the US – primarily in Nevada and Wyoming – and that it had many US clients in Panama as well.

Among the company’s US clients listed in the documents are four businessmen who have been convicted of financial crimes, as well as one who is currently facing serious charges. Their identities were first made public by McClatchy Newspapers.
