Antoine Deltour is the chief whistleblower in the Luxleaks 1, which has recently revealed a huge system of tax-saving maneuvers created by dozens of big international companies. At present he is being sued by the Luxembourg justice.

He accepts responsibility for having copied hundreds of “tax rulings” or tax deals negotiated by the Luxembourg tax authorities on behalf of international companies. Hundreds of billions of euros are vanishing from these companies ‘home countries’ or other places in which they actually operate. These huge sums of money are actually being transferred to countries that allow many of them to slash their global tax bills, notably Luxembourg. The magnitude of these aggressive tax schemes had never been brought to light until now, and has never before been so precisely delineated.

UPDATE -9 Oct 2015 — Dear signers,

We need your support to make the support campaign for Antoine move forward!

The award ceremony where Antoine will be given the European Citizens' Prize will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels in a few days, on 14 and 15 October.
This prize, which distinguishes people and organizations that significantly contribute to the common values of the European Union, is a great recognition of Antoine’s action and a highly significant gesture.
Antoine - with Edward Snowden and Stéphanie Gibaud - has also been nominated early September for the Sakharov Prize, which is awarded by the European Parliament to people who "have made an outstanding contribution to the fight for human rights in the world".
