‘Only $100m?’: Secrets of rich and powerful exposed in the Pandora Papers met with a weary shrug

The Independent says a leak of documents over the weekend showed Azerbaijan’s strongman, Ilham Aliyev, had secretly bought $540m (£400m) worth of property worldwide, including a central London home registered in the name of his then 11-year-old son.
