(SYDNEY MORNING HERALD) — “Crocodile Dundee” star Paul Hogan may have settled his tax case with Australian authorities but he is accusing his once-trusted tax adviser of absconding with $US34 million ($32.3 million) he helped Hogan hide in offshore tax havens.

There is already an international warrant out for Philip Egglishaw, the man known as the ”bowler hat Englishman”, who is the alleged mastermind behind Australia’s biggest tax evasion scheme.
