- HMRC releases mugshots of Britain’s most prolific tax dodgers
-Some are hiding in Britain while others have fled abroad
Britain’s 20 most wanted tax fugitives who have conned the exchequer out of a staggering £765million been named and shamed in an FBI-style government campaign.
HM Revenue & Customs has unmasked the tax cheats in a bid to help hunt them down, issuing photographs and profiles on a new website from this morning.
The most wanted are all tax criminals who have absconded after being charged with a crime or during trial.
Some are hiding in Britain while others have fled abroad to countries including Switzerland, South Africa and Pakistan.
It is the first time the Revenue has published photos of tax dodgers who are on the run in this way.
Ministers are unapologetic about the crack-down, saying that tax evasion and fraud has cost taxpayers around £10 billion a year.
