Pandora Papers unpacks secret funds of current world leaders Updated: 2021-10-05 07:49:11 KST

If you're asking how some of the world's richest and most powerful people hide their money, the answer may be found in almost 12 million financial documents, known as the Pandora Papers.
According to a report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, some of the current world leaders hid massive sums of money in overseas accounts.
This includes the King of Jordan, who secretly spent more than 100 million US dollars on a property empire in the UK and the U.S.
However, the papers also names current world leaders such as Czech president Andrej Babis, Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta, Ecuador's leader Guillermo Lasso, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin.
However, they're just among a handful of more than 330 current and former politicians identified as beneficiaries of secret accounts.
According to the report, many accounts were designed to evade taxes and conceal assets.
The Pandora Papers are a follow-up to a similar report released in 2016, known as the 'Panama Papers', which was compiled by the same journalistic group.
