The government of Great Britain reported that it has bought information from an anonymous source that was stolen from the Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca.

The data includes the names of the beneficial owners of companies, some of which are based in U.K. territories.

The information was leaked to a German newspaper in February 2015, and subsequently shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which oversaw the publication of articles in media from around the world.

In a press release published on its official website, British authorities reported that they bought a database which have enabled the investigation of 22 business owners for alleged tax evasion. It did not identify the seller or how much was paid.

"The work of researchers has not been delayed by the refusal of the ICIJ to supply the information they possess. We identified nine potential professional facilitators of economic crime - all of which have ties to known criminals," said the government.

They are also investigating 43 other people of high net worths with ties to the Panama law firm.

Among those in the data was former British Prime Minister David Cameron, who has not been investigated.
