Cahuzac scandal: Francois Hollande call to eradicate tax havens


The world's tax havens must be "eradicated" and French banks must declare all of their subsidiaries, French President Francois Hollande has announced.

Mr Hollande was speaking after presenting a draft law aimed at "moralising" French public life - a response to the tax scandal that has shaken his presidency.

France's ex-budget minister Jerome Cahuzac has been charged with fraud over a secret Swiss bank account.
