Rossis lawyer tax bill was settled

Lawyers says tax affairs were brought up to date as Rossis name appears on leaked HSBC list

Rossis lawyer tax bill was settled



VALENTINO Rossi’s lawyer has said the MotoGP legend’s tax is fully paid up after the racer’s name appeared on a list of names leaked by an HSBC worker.

HSBC IT worker turned whistleblower Herve Falciani stole files in 2007 alleging the bank helped wealthy customers dodge tax and handed them to French authorities.

Published at the weekend, the files include the names of celebrities and politicians - although inclusion on the list does not necessarily suggest wrongdoing.

Names include Valentino Rossi's, who held a client account named ‘Kikiki 62’ that listed two bank accounts holding $23.9 million.

Rossi paid a settlement of around €30 million following a tax investigation by Italian authorities in 2008.

Rossi’s lawyer, Claudio Sanchironi, has told journalists the sum was paid and the racer’s tax affairs brought into line.

At least Rossi fan’s now have a new online password to use. ‘VR46’ becomes ‘Kikiki62’.
