Redknapp knocked back reporter's evasion question

Harry Redknapp refuted News of the World reporter's suggestion that offshore account was a vehicle to evade tax

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR manager Harry Redknapp told a reporter that there was no need for him to dodge £30,000 of tax, a court heard yesterday.

The jury at Southwark Crown Court heard a tape recording of an interview between a journalist and Redknapp, in which Redknapp ridiculed a suggestion that he held funds in an offshore account in Monaco to evade UK tax.

Redknapp said on the recording: “Do me a favour. I tried to nick £30,000 to save on income tax?…Do I need that Rob?” reported the BBC.

Redknapp, and former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric, both deny charges of cheating the public revenue.
