More trouble for the Rev Lord Green’s old bank

Posted on

I've noted the problems the Rev Lord Green's had in the past with a spot of tax evasion in accounts run by his old bank.

Now I note the New York Times says today:

The world of offshore tax havens gained a surprising new contender on Thursday when the Justice Department asked a federal court for permission to force HSBC, the London-based bank, to turn over the names of wealthy Indian-American clients suspected of evading taxes through offshore accounts at the bank’s affiliate in India.

But it's OK. The Rev Green is now a Lord and a minister for trade and industry in the Conservatiove government.

So let's not worry about what happened on his old patch, eh?
