A search of the database made public last night by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists reveals the names of 170 individuals listed under accounts in Iceland, according to RÚV. The data is based on information from the Panama Papers, more than 11 million documents leaked from a Panama law firm.

In addition to those 170, other Icelanders can be found by searching accounts of other countries, such as Luxembourg and the UK. The database only covers part of the companies and individuals listed in the Panama Papers. It includes no original documents, only basic information regarding the companies.

It is estimated that the database includes about a fourth of the Icelandic names to be found in the Panama Papers. Those include many well known names related to the overseas expansion prior to the financial crisis in 2008, as well as the names of investors, CEOs, company board directors, merchants, wholesalers, lawyers and ship owners.
