Redistribution of income

'Calls are being made for a probe into claims that members of Australia's Eritrean community are being forced to pay a so-called 'diaspora tax'. (Transcript from World News Radio)

The federal government is being urged to investigate claims that representatives of the Eritrean government are forcing members of Australia's Eritrean community to pay an income tax banned by the United Nations.'

I'm not too surprised, how many other such arrangements are in place in Western World?

The US taxes all US citizens on their worldwide income wherever they are in the world (subject to a minimum for non residents and credits for foreign taxes paid on the income).
