A Luxembourg trial into the causes of leaks and theft of confidential documents from PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP that contributed to the so-called LuxLeaks scandal with the disclosure of thousands of pages of confidential tax rulings, will begin April 26.

French journalist Edouard Perrin, Antoine Deltour, a former auditor at PwC in Luxembourg and an unidentified French ex-employee of PwC were charged last year and will face the court over five days of hearings that will end May 4. The Luxembourg court released the date of the trial in an e-mailed statement.
