602 Israelis Named on Leaked HSBC List of Tax Haven Account-holders

Leak comes weeks after a tax amnesty expired September 27, under which Israelis had been allowed to belatedly report any income and assets held abroad and pay tax with minimum fines or other punishments.

Israeli tax authorities vowed to track down citizens whose names appeared on a leaked list of account holders with deposits held in the English Channel island of Jersey, a well-known tax haven.
