Good news, first. Our Turkish member Pelin Unker, who was facing jail for the Paradise Papers reporting, has been spared prison. Pelin was elated about the ruling but highlights that she wasn’t alone:

“I’m so happy. But not completely. Turkey is the largest prison for journalists and there are more than 160 in prison because of their job,” she told us.

US BREAST IMPLANT DECISION

The United States’ Food and Drug Administration announced on Thursday it would not ban textured breast implants, which have been linked to cancer, despite similar bans being put in place in Canada and France.

“I’m pretty discouraged,” breast implant advocate Jamee Cook said. “Our lymphoma patients are pretty upset that they’re not upholding the decisions that other countries are making.”

CRIME AND OFFSHORE

What happens when a government decides to crackdown on crime? The criminals try to hide their assets offshore, according to new research by three universities who looked for patterns in the Panama Papers data.

IMPLANT FILES LESSONS

There’s no such thing as a risk-free medical implant. This is just one (of eight) lessons we gathered during our year-long Implant Files investigation. If you want to know how this major investigation unfolded – this is the story for you. (But also, if you want to keep digging for stories - read on!)

‘GET THEM ALL OUT’

For our final Panama Papers anniversary story we spoke with Lyas Hallas. The Algerian reporter lost his job trying to report on the investigation but his work uncovering political corruption has helped fuel the rage of protesters during the latest revolution in the country. “It’s not my job to spark protests,” he told us.

Until next week!
