    Luxleaks whistleblowers in court to appeal

    Two whistleblowers and an investigative reporter in the "LuxLeaks" tax scandal return to court on Monday for leaking thousands of documents that exposed Luxembourg's huge tax breaks for major international companies.

    Former PricewaterhouseCoopers employees Antoine Deltour and Raphael Halet in June received 12-month and nine-month sentences, respectively.

    Journalist Edouard Perrin was acquitted of all charges, but was added to the appeal after the Luxembourg prosecutor argued that his case was indelibly linked to the others.

    The re-trial, following an appeal by Deltour and Halet, is due to last from Monday until December 21.

    Juncker

    The president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, spent years in his previous role as Luxembourg’s prime minister secretly blocking EU efforts to tackle tax avoidance by multinational corporations, leaked documents reveal.

    Years’ worth of confidential German diplomatic cables provide a candid account of Luxembourg’s obstructive manoeuvres inside one of Brussels’ most secretive committees.

    The question is, who ever agreed that a committee with such a sensitive mandate was set up with a 100% agreement requirement? Bound to fail....

    However, the Data Commissioner's role is severely constrained by the latest EU/EC proposals on data security.

    Nothing to see here, next Finance Bill will plug that one, meanwhile various slushy funds will slop around in the mire.

    And move on to the next loophole.

    This was well flagged some 24 months ago as it reached dail committee stage. FG govt ignored it at will especially Noonan received loads of lobbying from the vulture funds firms, finance firms et al.

    If FG govt want to increase their tax take, this is the one but they don't give a damn about it.
