European dataprotection and FATCA

The FATCA-victims of the United States also live in the UK. The British lawyer of one of these FATCA-victims, Mr. Filippo Noseda, published on the firm website correspondence on FATCA, and on the data security risks posed by the systems that are used by governments to exhange taxpayer information.

In a letter of 11 April 2020 Noseda writes that the European Commission was involved in the bilateral agreements the US concluded with all European countries and ignored data protection issues. In a previous letter, 7 April 2020, he comments on the position the European Commission has taken in regard of the accidental Americans.
