Description

If you’ve just received a new leak and find yourself investigating a story in a country you know nothing about, where do you usually start? For most of us, it’s Google or Wikipedia. But what if you had a tool that allowed you leave your wiki adventures for those lonely Friday nights when there’s nothing to watch on Netflix, and let you immediately search for Persons of Interest in that country, giving you a list of not only politicians, business people and other public figures, but also their families and associates, AND it did it in multiple languages and alphabets.
