SwissInfo: Alleged Cahuzac whistleblower arrested

The former Reyl & Cie employee also told the media that he knew of other tax dodging funds hidden away by other French ministers or ex-ministers

A former private banker has been arrested in Switzerland on suspicion of breaking secrecy laws after blowing the whistle on undeclared accounts held by ex-French budget minister Jerôme Cahuzac.

The former Reyl & Cie employee also told the media that he knew of other tax dodging funds hidden away by other French ministers or ex-ministers. He was detained on July 5, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office confirmed on Saturday.

Reyl & Cie said it had pressed criminal charges last month, saying that its former worker had falsified documents and violated Swiss banking secrecy laws.

The claims of assisting tax evaders, along with allegations that it was implicated in hiding non-declared funds of Cahuzac, led to the Paris authorities opening an investigation into Reyl in May.
