Not only is the interpretation of the law controversial, but case law has also toughened the rules of the game, especially after the decision of 20 May 2010. At the same time, lawmakers have responded to the various scandals concerning data with new, stricter laws, such as the prevention of tax evasion law of 29 July 2009 and the money-laundering prevention law of 28 April 2011. Now, when filing a voluntary disclosure, "the first shot must be a bull’s-eye,” otherwise the reward of voluntary disclosure will not be the amnesty sought after. Here the so-called "all-or-nothing principle" applies.
