The court will decide today whether whistle-blower Antoine Deltour will face punishment for stealing internal documents from his former employer PwC.

The court proceedings centre around the circumstances of how Deltour obtained the Luxleaks documents, but not the leak itself.

In January, the final court of appeal decided that the former PricewaterhouseCoopers employee Antoine Deltour will receive legal protection for his acts as a whistle blower. It also cancelled a fine of €1,500.

However, it still remains to be established whether a conviction for downloading the Luxleaks documents would be justified.
