Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said that authorities have received a list from the French government with the names of Cypriot depositors at Switzerland’s HSBC bank.

Georgiades, who was commenting on Tuesday in an interview on state radio CyBC, said the names would not be disclosed as this would be unlawful.

“But it is a data base which will be reviewed by the tax department to confirm that those appearing as Cypriots, or with an address in Cyprus on the list, can justify the deposited amounts,” he said. “It will be processed in a bid to verify that the deposited amounts are justified with respect to taxation.”
