It seems like newspapers are only reporting on:
- non-Dutch individuals
- names of Dutch individuals and businesses which probably have not played a significant part in actual tax evasion schemes, so the damage to their reputation (and Dutch society) might be limited.
As such, it seems as if Dutch newspapers are controlling the damage of the ICIJ effort, rather than having it reach the core of the Dutch society.
This results in the exceptionally awkward situation that we have the Secretary of State at the Dutch Ministry of Finance, Mr. Frans Weekers, making an effort to get access to all the data regarding Dutch businesses and individuals, rather than newspapers simply reporting the facts. He seems willing to take Dutch newspapers to court to reach that goal.
