The investigating agencies have recorded a flurry of transfers from the Swiss bank accounts they’d been tracing for years. The money has been diverted to places like Macau, Isle of Man, New Jersey Island, Caymon Islands and Seychelles, all of which are tax havens.
As per a report published in the daily DNA, the money in the Swiss bank accounts of Indian holders has been taken out and placed into safe countries with which India doesn’t have bilateral treatise. It seems, this has become possible owing to the habitual or intentional delay by the government in pursuing the issue.
The Income Tax department and Financial Intelligence Unit have been notified of the developments but the officials are sceptical about what can be done now.
