Who leaked on the HSBC Jersey list that’s been supplied to HMRC?

Posted on

I note in the Telegraph story about HSBC in Jersey that it is said:

The Telegraph has established from public records that HSBC has opened bank accounts in Jersey for several people who are wanted by the police or have serious criminal convictions.

With respect to the Telegraph, I don’t think so: you can’t prove who has a bank account from public records, especially in Jersey.

So who did leak this story? For the record, it wasn’t me or anyone I know.

So, was it the leaker?

Or HMRC?
