ICIJ reveals holders of wealth in overseas havens

Some 200 Italians on Offshore Leaks list

Rome, April 4 - Around 200 Italians are on a database of thousands of people holding wealth in offshore havens compiled by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with 36 international media organisations. The so-called Offshore Leaks list includes Olga Shuvalova, the wife of Russia's deputy prime minister Igor Shuvalov, and Jean-Jacques Augier, French President François Hollande's friend and campaign adviser during the 2012 elections. The news is a fresh blow to Hollande after it emerged that his former budget minister concealed a Swiss bank account for 20 years and repeatedly lied about it. Italian weekly magazine L'Espresso, which is among the media partners of the ICIJ project, said one of the Italians was Gaetano Terrin, an accountant who worked at the studio of former Italian economy minister Giulio Tremonti.
