Sunday evening’s “NHK Special” reported on the Panama Papers, saying it was found that the names of more than 700 Japanese nationals, including CEOs, lawyers, doctors, and former diplomats, were included in the documents. When NHK participated in a project led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in June, it discovered the existence of an enormous amount of files pertaining to Japan. The program contacted the Japanese nationals included in the Panama Papers and discovered that their personal information had been stolen and sent to Hong Kong to create paper companies. The program also reported on the “alchemy” of powerful leaders  and how they worked with journalists.
