Swiss ex-banker, Rudolf Elmer, has handed over financial information on 2,000 individuals (including 60 politicians) to Wikileaks. Elmer is himself on trial for previous leaks to Julian Assange’s group and breaking notoriously strict Swiss banking privacy laws. The information, stored on two CDs, was handed over to Julian Assange in a public press conference. The discs supposedly contain evidence of tax evasion that will be reviewed by Wikileaks, with plans to disclose parts of it publicly, and to relevant authorities.
Assange said that it will be at least two weeks before any of the information can be reviewed and released. Are you a rich tax evader? Ready… set… sweat!
