Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan says his tax adviser, who allegedly helped him hide money in a Swiss account in order to avoid taxes, has made off with $34 million of it. Australia has a warrant out for Philip Egglishaw, who is allegedly behind the country's largest tax evasion scheme, and now Hogan has also taken legal action in the US against the Englishman. A Swiss newspaper reports that Hogan can no longer access the $34 million, which was in the Swiss account for nearly two decades.

Egglishaw is accused with having "absconded with or spent all" the money, the Sydney Morning Herald reports; he is now believed to be in Switzerland. Hogan, meanwhile, reached a confidential settlement on his tax evasion case. (Read more Paul Hogan stories.)
