They hoped to keep their business private, but some of the world's richest citizens are instead having their finances opened to prying eyes this afternoon.

Confidential details of more than 200,000 offshore accounts in the Panama Papers — including the names of at least 625 Canadians — are being revealed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in the hope that public scrutiny of the material will generate hundreds of tips about possible corruption and tax dodging.

The new information includes the name of anyone listed as a director or shareholder of an offshore company in the huge Panama Papers leak, the names and addresses of more than 200,000 mostly secret offshore companies and the identities of hundreds of intermediary firms that create and help run offshore corporations.
