PROSECUTORS in Luxembourg have called for tougher sentences for two former PwC employees found guilty in the Luxleaks tax scandal.
In June, Antoine Deltour, a former auditor for the Big Four firm and ex-employee Raphael Halet received 12 and nine-month suspended sentences, respectively, for leaking documents that exposed tax deals struck between Luxembourg and some of the world’s biggest companies, including Apple, Ikea and Pepsi.
Prosecutors also want to challenge the acquittal of French journalist Edouard Perrin, who first reported on the leaks and was accused of being an accomplice and was acquitted of all charges.
The defence lawyers for Deltour and Halet have caled for an acquittal for all three defendants, arguing that their actions should be viewed as a form of public service.
The appeal hearing is expected to take place in either late 2016 or early 2017.
