So, just as Antoine Deltour is now being prosecuted in Luxembourg at the behest of PWC so is the HSBC whistleblower having to live a life under threat.
If there’s a lesson that comes out of this it is that a person revealing tax abuse has to be offered immunity from prosecution in international law. Justice demands it. In these cases, quite literally tax justice demands it.
Apparently we should tell the Swiss what their policy should be over prosecuting people who break Swiss law. But they shouldn’t be able to tell us anything about whether we prosecute people for tax evasion. How colonial.
BTW, is there any prosecution of this guy in international law? No? Then he’s immune from it, isn’t he?
