Credit Suisse Leak: Suisse Secrets

An anonymous whistleblower leaked a scandalous trove of banking data to a German Newspaper. 48 media companies from all over the world analyzed the contents of the Suisse Secrets data leak and the findings show that instead of conducting the required due diligence in screening potential clients, Credit Suisse accepted clients who are known to be “corrupt autocrats, suspected war criminals, human traffickers, drug dealers and other criminals.”1

A human trafficker convicted in the Philippines and an Egyptian murderer are also included in the data, as are cardinals allegedly involved in shady dealings and the former Siemens manager Eduard Seidel, who was convicted of bribery in 2008.
