Mining company Glencore has lodged proceedings in the High Court against the Australian Taxation Office. Glencore wants to the court to direct that the ATO give up copies of what are known as the Paradise Papers, which relate to files belonging to Bermuda-based law firm Appleby. Of concern to Glencore is information in the files relating to what has been dubbed Project Everest, which outlined a 2014 corporate restructure which saw Glencore relocate $30 billion worth of resource assets away from the "Australian tax net".
