Is he expecting sympathy because he couldn't secure his site or is he demanding protection against the revalation that his firm was actively engaged in tax dodging?

Panama Papers "Hacking"
I doubt that Mossack Fonseca will find many if any sympathetic ears. It is ironic that he built his company on secrecy, sold it as being carefully guarded and virtually impregnable, but neglected to implement measures that would have protected his client database.

The charge is: cooperating with hackers?
The International Consortium of Journalists may be guilty of cooperating with hackers in getting the Panama Papers, but as with the Snowden leak, we are glad to get information whatever way we can. It tells us how our government works (and doesn't work). If high level officials are dodging taxes or not disclosing their business connections while engaged in sensitive negotiations, I'm not going to throw someone in jail for disclosing that. Snowden isn't the best character with which to teach our children ethics, but his disclosures teach the rest of us a great deal.
