LuxLeaks whistleblowers convicted again
Luxembourg's appeal court on Wednesday sentenced whistleblower Antoine Deltour to a suspended 6-months of jail time and a €1,500 fine for revealing sweetheart tax deals granted to multinationals in Luxembourg. A second whistleblower, Raphael Halet, was given a €1,000 fine. Deltour said the "disappointing judgment constitutes an additional argument for going ahead with recent European initiatives towards whistleblowers’ protection”. He has yet to decide whether to appeal the verdict further.
