FinCEN Files: How it fits in to the chronology of financial mega-leaks and why it’s so important

The FinCEN Files, a global collaboration coordinated by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and BuzzFeed News with more than 100 media partners, shows how many of the world’s biggest banks have for years processed trillions of dollars in international bank transactions despite secretly suspecting they were tied to money laundering, fraud, corruption, embezzlement, and evasion of sanctions. The investigation shows the banks’ appetite for processing suspect transactions continued even after some of them were fined for anti-money laundering violations. In this panel, journalists who took part in the collaboration will explain why FinCEN Files is different from past leak-based investigations such as Panama Papers, Paradise Papers, SwissLeaks, FBME Bank or the Russian and Azerbaijani Laundromats.
