LONDON: Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was the only person responsible for the bank account in Monaco at the centre of charges of tax evasion against him, a court heard on Thursday. On the fourth day of his trial, a bank executive said Redknapp’s was the only signature on records for the account, which he allegedly used to hide $295,000 from tax authorities. The trial has heard that Redknapp opened a Monaco bank account – named ‘Rosie 47’ after his pet English bulldog – which he allegedly kept secret from his accountant for more than four years. Redknapp denies two counts of cheating the public revenue.
