COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Denmark’s tax agency said on Wednesday it has launched 34 court cases seeking damages from management in firms exposed of tax evasion in the Panama Papers.

The Danish government paid $900,000 for access to Panama Papers documents in 2016 to help it identify tax cheat suspects in Denmark.
