Luxembourg prosecutor appeals against LuxLeaks tax scandal verdicts

LUXEMBOURG,(APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 2nd Augst,2016) - Luxembourg has lodged an appeal against the sentences handed down to three LuxLeaks whistleblowers who exposed the small duchy's huge tax breaks for giant multinationals, the justice department said Tuesday.

"The state prosecutor lodged a general appeal at the end of last week," spokesman Henri Eippers told AFP. Former PricewaterhouseCoopers employees Antoine Deltour and Raphael Halet were given suspended 12- and nine-month jail terms while journalist Edouard Perrin was acquitted of all charges at their trial in June.
