China bans all mention of Panama Papers from Chinese websites

Chinese news outlets have been ordered to delete all mention of the Panama Papers from their websites, in a directive reading, ‘Find and delete reprinted reports on the Panama Papers. Do not follow up on related content, no exceptions. If material from foreign media attacking China is found on any website, it will be dealt with severely.’ The leaked ‘Panama Papers’ reveal that ‘at least eight current or former members of China’s top ruling body…possess offshore companies arranged through the law firm Mossack Fonseca.’
