Two former employees of PricewaterhouseCoopers accused of being behind the biggest ever leak of confidential corporate tax deals face criminal trial in Luxembourg on Tuesday.
Antoine Deltour and a second man, who is expected to be named in court this week, are charged with carrying out the LuxLeaks theft, violating the Grand Duchy’s strict professional secrecy laws and other offences. Their criminal prosecution follows a complaint to Luxembourg’s public prosecutor by PwC.
Well, it appears that there might be a case to answer that they broke the law. And those accused certainly think that they might have to answer for their actions.
About which the Murph tells us:
But the scandal is it is the whistleblowers in court, at PWC’s behest.
No one, in a million years, could describe this as justice.
So we don’t have to obey either the spirit or the letter of the law if we don’t like it?
