Emma Watson's name in the Panama Papers leak

[Version fran├žaise]

First of all, I'd like to remind people that having a count offshore is not something uncommon and does NOT equal to hiding money. Whether Emma did hide money or not will be the authorities' role to find out, not ours.

Now the article from the Mirror:

The Harry Potter star's spokesperson says she gets 'absolutely no tax or monetary advantages' from her offshore arrangement. 
Emma Watson's links to an offshore trust has been revealed in a huge leak of secret documents. 
The Harry Potter star turned political activist is named in the Panama Papers, revealing she has interests in a firm based in the British Virgin Islands.
But a spokesperson for Ms Watson says she does not use the firm to avoid tax, only for privacy. 
The database, released online yesterday, reveals Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is a shareholder of Falling Leaves Ltd, a company based in the British overseas territory. 
Her representatives told the Spectator: "Emma (like many high profile individuals) set up an offshore company for the sole purpose of protecting her anonymity and safety. 
"UK companies are required to publicly publish details of their shareholders and therefore do not give her the necessary anonymity required to protect her personal safety, which has been jeopardised in the past owing to such information being publicly available. 
"Offshore companies do not publish these shareholder details. Emma receives absolutely no tax or monetary advantages from this offshore company whatsoever – only privacy."
