The unfolding "Panama Papers" scandal has claimed its first casualty.

The Prime Minister of Iceland, Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson has resigned apparently because his wife has been exposed as an owner of an offshore company.

The dominoes could be starting to fall for many national leaders worldwide.

But the strange absence of American connections are yet to come.

Icelanders were protesting yesterday and it looks like they get results !!!

The story also mentions denials by exposed China leaders too.


Icelandic leader resigns over Panama Papers revelations on wife's holdings


Iceland's Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson is to step down after leaked documents from a Panamanian law firm showed his wife owned an offshore company with big claims on collapsed Icelandic banks, his party said.

Gunnlaugsson became the first prominent casualty from the revelations in the so-called Panama Papers, which have cast light on the financial arrangements of an array of politicians and public figures across the globe and the companies and financial institutions they use.

Earlier on Tuesday, Gunnlaugsson had asked Iceland's president to dissolve parliament in the face of a looming no-confidence vote and mass street protests over the revelations. Such a move would almost certainly lead to a new election.

Exactly so this surprises me, though perhaps I ought not be surprised. I wonder if any connection to American politics haves been made?

There's a remote possibility that somebody high up in the Hillary Clinton Campaign is "connected".
