Hungary To Investigate Panama Papers

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

13 April 2016


Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has announced that teams will be formed within the country's law enforcement and tax authorities to investigate any Hungarian links to the Panama Papers.

Orban told parliament on April 11 that members of the police and the National Tax Authority will be involved in analyzing any information that has emerged from the leak with relevance to Hungarian taxpayers. Hungary's Prosecutor's Office would also take part in the investigations, the Prime Minister confirmed.

Orban believes that the probe will "deliver results, especially if international investigative bodies are prepared to cooperate."

Hungary is the latest in a long line of countries to have announced the formation of special teams to examine the Panama papers, which, according to the OECD, contain information on more than 200,000 companies in "21 offshore jurisdictions."
