The sad story of good business getting greedy and well paid regulators both in Jersey and Guernsey not doing proper regulating and policing the business although they tell the public and politicians that they do. Proof. Israeli tax authorities vowed to track down citizens whose names appeared on a leaked list of account holders with deposits held in the English Channel island of Jersey, a well-known tax haven. The leak comes weeks after a tax amnesty expired September 27, under which Israelis had been allowed to belatedly report any income and assets held abroad and pay tax with minimum fines or other punishments. http://www.haaretz.com/business/602-israelis-named-on-leaked-hsbc-list-of-tax-haven-account-holders.premium-1.476915 Greek Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras has requested information from the U.K. government on Greeks holding HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) accounts in Jersey. Stournaras wrote to U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne asking for the information, according to an e-mailed statement from the Athens-based Finance Ministry. The Jersey Financial Services Commission, the island’s financial regulator, said on Nov.13 it will investigate HSBC’s data loss and examine the “anti-money laundering systems and controls” at the bank. HSBC told the regulator it will co- operate. http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-11-15/greece-asks-u-dot-k-dot-chancellor-for-hsbc-account-holders-in-jersey
