HMRC want to see bank accounts based on false evidence

I am in an ongoing enquiry with HMRC. Recently, HMRC asked me why the value of my shares had doubled within a particular year. They were implying that I had bought some shares and wanted to know how many. When I looked at my account I had not performed any trades that year, and in fact the value of the shares had decreased slightly. I told HMRC this. Their response was to say they are not happy with my answer, and want to see 5 years bank statements for all my accounts. I believe they are making false accusations in order to gain access to my bank accounts, and feel this is a violation of my human rights. What should I do?

Thanks.

It is an INCOME tax return, not an ASSETS AND LIABILITIES return

Do I have any rights to see the evidence/ figures HMRC have?
