OPINION:
Has the Media Failed the Public on the Panama Papers?

A major donor to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's is featured in the International Consortium of Investigative Journalist's records on offshore bank accounts.

Sussman heads the Paloma Partners, a holding company that provides security brokerage, investment and management consultancy services. According to OpenSecrets.org, Paloma Partners has donated $4,007,900 to Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election cycle...

Sussman is linked to two offshore holdings by ICIJ's Offshore Leaks: Simply Radiant, Limited and New China Technology Licensing, Inc. According to ICIJ, Sussman is director of British Virgin Islands-based Simply Radiant, which was founded in 1994 but which no longer operates. Paloma Partners is also a Simply Radiant shareholder. Sussman is also named director of China Technology Licensing, Inc., started in 2002 but which also no longer operates.

Sussman, who is married to U.S. congresswoman from Maine, was at the center of a major corruption scandal in 2012.  According to a May 2, 2012, article in Maine Wire, his “associates … have become key players in a major bribery scandal that is rocking the Department of Justice and the U.S. Virgin Islands,” where Sussman “has been a resident ... and uses a controversial tax shelter.”


CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Panama Papers name Haim Saban, and suggested a link with the company Gil Saban Limited. No connection can be found between the company and Saban or his family members. teleSUR apologizes for the error.
