Wikileaks To Name Swiss Bank Tax Evaders

eldavojohn writes “The old cliche that the rich and corrupt hold all their money in Swiss bank accounts (to avoid taxation) may finally have a bit of transparency as the news today is that Wikileaks has been handed a list of account holders tendered by Rudolf Elmer, former banker of Julius Baer. Julian Assange promises a ‘full revelation’ while Elmer cited his motivation as being ‘I want to let society know how this system works. It’s damaging society.’ This appears to be real as Mr. Elmer is soon to appear before a Zurich regional court on charges of coercion as well as violations of Switzerland’s strict banking secrecy laws. The public may soon find out that their favorite celebrity, politician or employer doesn’t feel responsible to contribute financially to the commonwealth at the expense of privacy.”
