A New Cale­do­nia court has thrown out a sec­ond ma­jor tax fraud case in­volv­ing Wal­lis and Fu­tuna. 57 peo­ple had been ac­cused of de­fraud­ing the French govern­ment of mil­lions of dol­lars by abus­ing a French in­vest­ment law.

Some of them were al­ready con­victed three years ago for a fraud amount­ing to US$26 mil­lion (FJ$54.95m) by sub­mit­ting fake in­voices and in­sur­ance re­ceipts.
