Panama Papers law firm sues Netflix

Mossack Fonseca, the law firm involved in the ’Panama Papers’ is suing Netflix, attempting to stop the release of The Laundromat, a movie about the leaked confidential files.

Mossack and  Fonseca, played by Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas are portrayed, complain that the trailer for the film, which also stars Meryl Streep as a woman who has lost her husband in a boat accident, makes them out to be “villains profiting from the death of 20 people killed in the small town boat tour.”

Netflix, which has been approached for comment, is yet to file a defence and a date for a hearing has not been set.
