Political Tax Evaders? Oxymoron?
Can you believe this? Politicians and celebrities accused of tax evasion. Former Swiss banker, Rudolf Elmer, has handed over a disc to wikileaks containing 2,000 names including 40 politicians he believes are guilty of tax evasion. Politicians not paying taxes? If they are found guilty they should be immediately removed from their positions. What do you think?
A former Swiss banker said Monday that he has handed over to WikiLeaks two discs containing what he claims is information on 2,000 offshore bank account holders.
Rudolf Elmer, an ex-employee of Swiss-based bank Julius Baer, said the documents reveal case after case of tax evasion and involve 40 politicians as well as entertainers and multinationals from the U.S., the U.K. and elsewhere. He refused to name the account holders, but said the data span a period of at least 19 years and involve three banks.
