I share your hope, and I partially share your doubt.

There is a lot of anger among the general citizenry of many countries, directed toward people and companies seen as evading taxes and/or laundering dirty money. Australia is one of those countries where the anger is intense.
Here’s a VIDEO of a recent Australian Broadcasting Corp. television program called [I]Four Corners[/I] (kind of like the PBS program [I]Frontline[/I] in the U.S.) which you might want to watch. It will probably reinforce the hope you referred to.

Regarding your doubt that anything will actually come of all this —
There is very good reason to question who is actually behind these leaked revelations, and what their hidden agenda might be.
Specifically, the two most prominent organizations involved in receiving, decrypting, sorting, and releasing the data hacked from Mossack Fonseca are [I]The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists[/I] (whose articles I have been posting in this thread), and the [I]Süddeutsche Zeitung[/I] (South German Newspaper). Both of these organizations have highly suspicious backers, funders, and/or affiliates. Red flags are raised.
More on this in a future post.
Also, only a tiny percentage of the total 2.6 terabytes of hacked data (11.5 million documents) has been made public, and the flow of new releases has slowed to a trickle. What are we to make of that?
