15 Mar Fabio De Masi on verdict in LuxLeaks whistleblower trial
Countries in the European Union are losing hundreds of billions of euros each year due to tax dumping and tax avoidance by large multinationals. The whistleblowers Antoine Deltour and Raphael Halet, together with the journalist Edouard Perrin, made the scandalous sweetheart deals with these companies public in the LuxLeaks. They – and not those stealing from society – have been on trial subsequently. The final verdict is due on 15 March 2017. We say that the three should be publicly honoured and not prosecuted.
