CORRECTION NOTE: The IBAHRI publication Tax Abuses, Poverty and Human Rights contains an error on page 67. The third bullet in the text box on ‘Jersey at a glance’ mistakenly reproduces a bullet about banking secrecy from the case study on Switzerland at page 59. The correct information is that there are no criminal offences whether statutory or otherwise giving rise to bank secrecy in Jersey. This has now been amended.
