The OCCRP has compiled a list of people of interest in its coverage area. Some of these people are criminals, some are politicians and some are businessmen. Some are all three. All of these figures are well known and figure regularely in stories about organized crime and corruption. OCCRP, in the interes of better public understanding and accuracy in stories, is providing background information on these people. By inclusion on this list, we do not wish to imply any of these figures are corrupt or involved in organized crime unless specifically noted.
