Personal Logic Example

On April 6th, panama law firm Mossack Fonseca leaked a secret document about capital information. This document referenced 12 current world leader as well as 128 other politicians and public officials. In addition to allegations involving associates of Putin — the Russian leader isn’t himself mentioned by name in any of the documents — and FIFA, the papers also accuse the prime minister of Iceland, Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson, of having ties, through his wife, to an offshore company that were not properly disclosed, while Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri is alleged to have failed to disclose links to a company in his asset declarations.


  1. Information provider: This document was published by ICIJ (the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists), dubbed by panama document. An anonymous source gave the documents to Germany’s Suddeutsche Zeitung and the newspaper shared them with ICIJ. Other media organizations that reported on the document include the BBC, The guardian and Maclathy.
  2. Mossack Fonseca Company: On April 7th, this company released a statement: “Our industry is not particularly well understood by the public, and unfortunately this series of articles will only serve to deepen that confusion. The facts are these: while we may have been the victim of a data breach, nothing we’ve seen in this illegally obtained cache of documents suggests we’ve done anything illegal, and that’s very much in keeping with the global reputation we’ve built over the past 40 years of doing business the right way, right here in Panama. The Law firm didn’t deny the truth of the information. They just repeatedly stress they were the victim of data breach.


Conclusion: In the final analysis, this is a breaking new. According to above evidence, this current is verified. Political leaders had strong reactions and some of they were tried to block the passage of information, or were under investigation.

    Don’t understand how this is an example of personal logic. Is it the Law firm repeatedly underlining that they have not done anything illegal?
