Ex hack “guesses” about data he’s never seen, and this is a story how?

The left-wing and their pals in theMedia party are really getting into this Panama Papers thing.

They are passing their own moral judgements using stolen documents yet again.

But Newshub is pimping one of those lefty twats even though he is just guessing.

A Kiwi journalist at the heart of a huge leak of documents from a Panama-based law firm says some New Zealand names could be dragged through the mud.

The leak of 11.5 million documents – amounting to 2.6 terabytes of data – from Panama-based Mossack Fonseca is considered to be the largest in history.

The so-called Panama Papers reveal the existence of 214,000 foreign trusts and companies set up in more than 200 countries for Mossack Fonseca’s wealthy clients.

More than 11,000 foreign trusts have been set up in New Zealand and opposition parties are accusing the Government of allowing the country to be used as a tax haven.  

Former Wairarapa Times-Age and Evening Post journalist Peter Bale, now head of the Center for Public Integrity that oversaw the journalistic investigation, spoke to The Nation today.

Although he had not looked at the New Zealand data himself, he said he had discussed it with the team of investigative journalists working on the project.

“You can be absolutely certain, I think, or as near to certain that there will be significant numbers of New Zealanders and of New Zealand entities, certainly New Zealand entities, within this data set.”

Due to the time and resources needed to analyse the data, it could take months to produce results, but there was “still much more to come”, he said.

“The history of New Zealand’s position on offshore companies, people registering trusts there from offshore and also things like New Zealand’s relationship with Niue and some of the other places that we know Mossack Fonseca has used, means that you should assume that there is a very strong New Zealand connection.”

So all guesses, all subjective and by the same bunch of wankers who did this sort of thing before.

The problem I have is that the Media party now think nothing about laundering stolen documents. They believe the ends justifies the means. Yet again a criminal hacker has stolen data and is going after people because he doesn’t agree with their world view.

Here’s the thing though…he’s playing with people with vast resources…and a law firm that represents those people. You may be sure that there is a highly paid team of Chinese counter-hackers now working on finding those responsible.

Meanwhile the general public’s eyes glass over with boredom.

The only amusing thing about all of this is watching the left-wing prostrate themselves in prayer hoping John Key is named.
