HSBC Tax Evasion Whistleblower Has Proof

Herve Falciani, who took a trove of data from HSBC Holdings Plc that spawned investigations of extensive tax evasion by the bank’s clients, said he also has proof senior managers knew about the practices.

“I can prove, and it has to be explained, that the top management is aware and was aware of the problem,” Falciani, a software technician, said in a Feb. 27 interview with Bloomberg Television’s Francine Lacqua. He declined to identify any bank executives and he declined to describe his evidence, saying only that his files provide “logical proof.”
