Four Corners - Tax Me if you Can
His present identity and whereabouts are mysteries to all but a select few. When he reveals his story to members of a powerful US Senate committee, he's just a silhouette on a screen. The man who used to be known as Heinrich Kieber lives his life immersed in secrets.
Six years ago Kieber was an obscure computer technician updating systems inside LGT, a bank owned by the royal family of tiny Liechtenstein. Now he's attracted international fame, fortune and alleged death threats as a whistle-blower, after making off with 12,000 pages of LGT documents that set out its clients' extremely private financial affairs in embarrassing and often incriminating detail."
Kieber sold the data to German authorities for about $6 million. And a posse of western governments, including Australia, are tracking the fortunes that their wealthy citizens stashed behind the secret walls of Liechtenstein's banks.
Four Corners tells the remarkable story of Heinrich Kieber – roguish hero to some, amoral thief to others - and the worldwide fallout from his actions.
