HMRC's most wanted tax fugitives
HMRC has published an updated list of their most wanted 'tax fugitives' and announced that a 'fraudster' has been apprehended at Heathrow Airport whilst travelling on a false passport, following almost ten years on the run.
HMRC have published a gallery of its 2013 most wanted and announced the capture of one of the most wanted tax criminal fugitives. To view the gallery see the link to the flickr page below.
The 2013 list includes updated information on the original 20 together with the addition of 10 more tax fugitives. These fugitives are being pursued for a range of crimes including VAT fraud, tax evasion and money laundering. According to HMRC their crimes have cost the taxpayer between £100,000 and £10 million.
Anthony Judge, who was wanted for his role in over £350,000 of tax fraud, was stopped at Heathrow Airport last month as he attempted to enter the UK on a forged passport.
Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said:
'Our message is clear; tax fraud and evasion is illegal and will not be tolerated. Millions of hard-working people pay their taxes and it is they who are being defrauded. The government has stepped up HMRC's enforcement activities to enable them to pursue tax cheats relentlessly around the world.'
