The so-called "Paradise Papers" have highlighted the involvement of prominent investors - including the American Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross. The papers also reveal the financial dealings of many of the rich and famous, including Britain's Queen Elizabeth. RTHK’s London correspondent Gavin Grey says the activities that were stated in the papers were not illegal. He tells Annemarie Evans it’s unclear where the latest leak came from.
