Scotland Police Investigating 'Confidential Leaks' Relating To Rangers Tax Case
Poice in Scotland are "investigating the alleged leaking of confidential information" relating to the tax case of Scottish Third Division club Rangers, according to the Scotland DAILY RECORD. Strathclyde Police said that officers "had been instructed to look into suspicions that private details were released in breach of the law." The former Rangers club known as "Oldco" was investigated last year "over its use of Employee Benefit Trusts." Rangers "effectively won the case" after a tribunal ruled that some payments made to players through EBTs were taxable, but that many of them "could be described as loans, as the club had argued." An appeal has been lodged by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (DAILY RECORD, 3/19).
