Some Of The Best Figure

Revealing only the names but not their addresses, the weekly magazine said two years ago Germany had passed on the names and bank account details of these account holders. The magazine claims to have possession of 16 of the 18 names on the list, which the UPA government refused to make public.

The paper revealed names of the 15 account holders. They are: Manoj Dhupelia, Rupal Dhupelia, Mohan Dhupelia, Hasmukh Gandhi, Chintan Gandhi, Arun Kochar, Ashok Jaipuria, Raj Foundation, Urvashi Foundation and Ambrunova Trust. The three trusts are registered outside India, the report said.

The revelations may mean fresh trouble for an already embattled UPA government which has been refusing to make public the names saying it was bound by secrecy clauses in agreements with a host of countries.

The government has given some names in a sealed envelope to the Supreme Court which is hearing a case.

“At this point, we are putting out 15 names without disclosing details like their addresses, the businesses they are involved in and the total money they have stored away in Liechtenstein,” the weekly said.

It said the 18 names are part of the list of 1,400 clients, which were stolen from the databank of LGT Group, the Liechtenstein bank owned by the principality’s ruling family, and passed on to German tax authorities in 2008. The German government had paid as much as €5 million, or $7.4 million, for information on German account holders in Liechtenstein...After this, Germany and England had launched massive investigations resulting in prosecution of dozens of their citizens.

Germany alone had initiated action against over 600 of its tax payers. Besides taking action against its own citizens, Germany had also shared this information with other countries including India.
