Panama papers and Scientology completions

    Recently the Sunday times has put a file on the net with all the names that come up in the Panama Papers.
    I have checked these names against completions. Now that in itself doesn't prove ANYTHING. If there is a John Doe in completions, and there is a John Doe in the Panama papers, that in itself in no way proves these are one and the same person.
    Ok... and now I think you have already guessed that for some of the names in the Panama Papers I have found that exactly the same names are also in completions!
    Enclosed you find a file with the original lines from the Sunday Times file for only the names that I also found in completions.
    IMPORTANT: this is the result of an automated process using "vertical search" with EXACT comparison. That also is the reason why it is a small file. There are over 500,000 lines in the Sunday Times file, here I have only 571. A LOT of the entries in the Sunday Times file have "baptism names" (do not know the right English word), and completions only have first and last name.
    So it's a long stretch, you should be aware of that. However: finding a needle in a haystack while not knowing if there is a needle at all is much harder than finding a needle in - say - a bucket full of hay.
    Here goes for all you fellow researchers out there.

    P.S. There also was a George Allen with > 10000 lines, who is also in completions. I deleted him to have a manageable file.

    Having spent quite some times compiling completion lists from the "Truth about scientology", I can tell that there are many duplicates there, with minor changes (nicknames, spelling).

    Having said that, there will be interesting to have a closer look on the list.

    Very unusual names are less likely to be false positives, of course.
    I would look for names of scientology whales and those on OT level completion lists as most important.

    Well... there is birth name, "Christian name", legal name, maiden name...?
