An attorney for Shakira told the ICIJ that the Colombian singer denies all wrongdoings, saying she had declared her companies in the Bahamas claiming they do not provide tax advantages.

Representatives for Schiffer also claim the fashion star pays her taxes in the U.K., where she is based.

The case centers on allegations that Shakira lived in Spain during the period, although she was registered for tax purposes in the Bahamas.

The Pandora Papers are a follow-up to a similar project in 2016 from the same journalist collective called the Panama Papers.

The Panama Papers, however, were based on a data leak from a single, now-defunct, law firm called Mossack Fonseca located in Panama.

The latest data dump is even larger than the Panama Papers and comes from documents leaked from some 14 different service providers doing business in 38 different jurisdictions worldwide.

On the other side of the world, the Australia Tax Office said on Monday that it would also be analyzing the information in the Pandora Papers “to identify any possible Australian links.”. »
