Thirty-two top tax cheats get over 150 years behind bars

Operation SnowbankThe top tax criminals of 2012 have been sentenced to a combined total of 155 years and 10 months behind bars, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) announced today.
Over 30 of the UK’s top tax cheats are being publicised on Flickr as part of HMRC’s current Tax Evasion Campaign.
Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury David Gauke said:
“The Government is committed to closing in on tax evaders. Collectively the 32 criminals have been sentenced to more than 150 years. Most people play by the rules and pay what they owe, but HMRC is cracking down on those who don’t.
“We hope that publishing these pictures will help get across that it always makes sense to declare all your income, and tax dodgers are simply storing up trouble for the future.”
