The decision to publish the names and faces of those wanted for tax evasion, fraud and money laundering, has been taken by HMRC in an effort to try and enlist the support of the public in tracking them down.
It is also the latest move of a government campaign which aims to tackle tax evasion and gather taxes at a time of austerity; with those featuring on the list being described as “tax criminals who have absconded after being charged with a crime or during trial.”
David Guake, the Exchequer Secretary, has said of the latest tactic being used by HMRC to tackle tax evasion: “The government is absolutely committed to tackling tax evasion and fraud.
“These criminals have collectively cost the taxpayer over £765 million and HMRC will pursue them relentlessly. We hope that publishing their pictures in this way will enable members of the public to contribute to the effort to catch them.”
