    psst. More likely that they threatened to actually reveal who the transferers were! This exportation sans taxes was obviously known in advance to Cretina and cronies. lol.

    Shame on you HSBC for collaboration/facilitation with rotting roadkill.

    “charged HSBC with aiding more than 4,000 clients to evade taxes by stashing their money in secret Swiss bank accounts.”

    Do the Peronist government use another bank to stash theirs overseas?

    Is it not against the law for a bank to refuse customers requests to transfer their money to other banks? Think they will find that it is, unless the account holder and their financial assets are subject to court order or illegal proceeds. As at the end of the day the money belongs to the account holder, not the bank!

    “As at the end of the day the money belongs to the account holder, not the bank!”

    Not if the argie ‘government’ decide to de-dollarize every citizen’s dollar account with the ‘official rate of argie arsewipe Pesos.

    They have done it before and probably have advanced plans to do it soon.

    It must be grand to live there!

    At least somebody is questioning it. Wonder how long they will take to silence him.
