    These account holders have the right to legally arrange their personal and business affairs in any legal manner they wish, in order to legally avoid paying tax.
    it is as simple as that.
    I have the solution for them.

      ‘Legally evade tax’? How can helping plunge your country into the worst economic situation Greece has seen for more than 100 years be legal? Everyone benefiting from living in Greece has to pay tax!

    Many of these on the list are suspected of corruption, and there are accounts with half a BILLION euros in them. Just as in Portugal, corruption siphons money out of the country, and no-one gets tried for it. Portugal is still trying to get people to trial for a bank corruption scheme (43 different cases of corruption) whereby ministers and bankers stole money, costing the tax payer 11.7 BILLION euros. Politics in the Med is theft on a large scale.

      The SSL certificate is for the domain ( and is not valid for the subdomain where the information is located ( This is because the SSL certificate for the site was originally intended to protect people submitting information to us, not to protect information flowing out to you. This will likely be corrected at some point, but until then you can just browse the website via HTTP, rather than HTTPS or you can look at the certificate information, see that it is not for a completely different website and verify the exception to continue browsing via HTTPS.

    The question is: Why french authoritys send to the greek authoritys the information of bank accounts of greek citizens? What is the point? All people know that in each country there are people with bank accounts outside of this country ( france, germany, hollande , include). In offshores or other place with attractive fiscal policys. This is crime? Im affraid said that is not. What is crime is corruption and the money use and secretly send to offshores. In relation of Portugal ( to correct Erik Peterson ) the bank is named bpn ( portuguese business bank ) and the fraud is about 7 billion euros. The government nacionalize the bank in 2008, during the crise, because the possible of systemic risk. Now the bank was sold to bic ( angolan bank ) for 40 milllion euros. Nobody was guilty or setenced. The only one who was arrest a litle time in his home is the owner of the bank. Now he is free and walk naturally into the streets of Lisbon. The is a true story when he see that sometimes for some people the crime is profitalble.
