Hogan Demands Apology Over Tax 'Sham' Accusations

LATEST: Actor PAUL HOGAN has demanded an apology from Australian tax authorities over a five-year investigation into his finances - insisting officials "bullied" him throughout the process.
The Crocodile Dundee star was accused of distorting his residency status to avoid paying tax, with the Australian Crime Commission alleging he hoarded millions of Australian dollars in foreign havens.
In August (08), court documents stated there was a "scheme or conspiracy" between Hogan and his tax advisor Tony Stewart to misrepresent his status by producing "sham" travel movements.
It was also alleged this was so the star could receive money when he "was not a tax resident of any country and therefore the payment was free of tax".
But Hogan, who lives in Santa Barbara, California, has vehemently denied the accusations, and claims the Commission has made his life hell throughout their investigation.
He told reporters on Tuesday (27Oct08), "I've been shocked by the bullying tactics and the strange laws in Australia. These people have bullied me and my friends.
"They come after you and you have no right to speak to the press, but they - the enemy - they just leak to the press."
He added, "I'm just waiting for the big apology... that's not going to happen but it should."
The Australian Crime Commission has refused to comment on whether the probe into Hogan's tax affairs is ongoing.
