| 07/01/2011

(Daily Telegraph): Paul Hogan, star of the ‘Crocodile Dundee’ movies is planning to sue the Australian government for over £50 million for damaging his reputation in a tax investigation. The Australian actor rose to world fame after he appeared in the 1986 film Crocodile Dundee, which became one of Australia’s most successful films of all time. After the Australian Crime Commission became suspicious that he was using offshore tax havens to conceal his wealth, however, he was subjected to a five-year tax investigation which was only dropped last November. Now, Hogan’s lawyer Andrew Robinson has said that his client is planning to sue the Australian government for up to $80 million for loss of earnings.

”His earning potential and reputation has been decimated in the international community and it has had that level of effect on his position,” he said.
