The head of Argentina's tax authority has demanded that HSBC repatriate $3.5bn in funds that it says HSBC helped its clients move offshore.

BBC News reports that Ricardo Echegaray said that HSBC's actions threatened the stability of the Argentine government.

'HSBC built a platform to help clients evade tax', said Echegary in a press briefing at London's Argentine embassy.

He confirmed that British tax authorities had asked for details about Argentina's case against HSBC.
