Has India become a corruption-free country already? Or, are the crooks getting smarter? Just one dot from Madhya Bharat in the @guardian expose of “criminals, fraudsters and corrupt politicians” holding £80 billion worth accounts in the notorious Swiss bank @CreditSuisse.
“We can reveal today how #CreditSuisse repeatedly either opened or maintained bank accounts for a panoramic array of high-risk clients across the world”: How the @guardian showcases its expose of “criminals, fraudsters and corrupt politicians” over 7 pages.
On 9 Jan 2014, four months before he became PM, @narendramodi promised to bring back money “stolen” from India and deposited in foreign banks: “If we bring that back, each poor Indian will get Rs 15-20 lakh just like that.” @PMOIndia #CreditSuisse

On @euronews today commenting on major crisis in #EU - #Swiss relations.

Interview by great @Brusselsness

👇 🧵on why this breakdown & what next, in 8 points
1/ This is obviously sovereignty vs economy all over again.
Swiss focus on freedom of movement, “benefit tourism”, pressure on wages & “foreign judges”
I think🇨🇭have bad case- EU has been accommodating & numbers don’t add up to problems they pretend. But again, it’s politics.
2/ For 🇪🇺, final sign🇨🇭gov not ready for fair single market settlement w/ EU.
Benefits more than anyone, gives little in return. Single market adds €2900 to every Swiss/year, costs €14
Biggest problem lack uniform application of rules (incl. state aid) for single market LPF

This is a plot of the daily reported #COVID19 (c)ases (light blue), (h)ospitalizations (light orange), and (f)atalities (light red) in #Switzerland. In addition, I plotted the cumulative numbers added up over 14 days for (c) and (f) and over 22 days for (h), corresp. dark colors.
What do we learn from the data? The second #COVID19 wave in #Switzerland has reached levels in all indicators (c,h,f) (somewhat) larger than the first wave. The peak daily reported (c)ases are a factor 8.5 times higher than in the first wave.
The peak reported (f)atalities and (h)ospitalizations per day are 1.5 and 1.25 times higher than in the first wave. Both likely have not reached their maximum yet. Also (h) data comes in with a delay of up to 7 days from the current date, while for (c) and (f) it is ~3 days.

This itvu (in German) with #Finma boss Mark Branson is an ideal complement to the media blitz by Daniel Thelesklaf recently:

Branson talks about suspicious activity reports in #Switzerland (#MoneyLaundering) surging to about 8,000 per year, from 1,000.…
That's still low internationally (and remember Switzerland remains world's largest offshore haven), but Branson is arguing that notifications are high quality.

Whatever the quality, officials still can't keep up. We know this from the guy who oversaw it:…
Branson also says that #1MDB is one of the most brazen and biggest graft cases the world has ever seen.

1MDB had art, jewelry, luxury property, Hollywood blockbuster, etc. but #PDVSA is not only much larger in scale, it also has far more tragic real-world impact on Venezuelans.

Really interesting for us media types who have been watching to see what real-world impact, if any, this report on #SNB and #diversity will have.

One marker is, who picks it up? Today, more than a week after the piece ran, Bloomberg did. Sort of.…
On the same day as the report, 12 parliamentarians asked the #Swiss government to answer a few questions about the #SNB's culture, fair hiring, and promoting practices.

It's available here:…
(Bloomberg somewhat misleadingly says the motion – it's not a motion, it's what called an interpellation in parliament-speak – was tabled, which in large parts of the world = suspended. It was not suspended. The government has yet to respond but is obligated to do so eventually.)

[Secret deal: China's security cops can investigate in #Switzerland]

1. @NZZaS: #China & #Swiss signed a secret deal in 2015 allowing #Beijing's security officers to investigate Chinese nationals WITHIN #Switzerland for 2 weeks, even w/o official status.…
2. Five years after the secret deal was signed, no Swiss MP had ever heard of the deal. In contrast to similar agreements between #Switzerland and other countries, the one with #China is harsher as #Chinese cops can come and investigate without prior discussion with Swiss govt.
3. Even though the treaty claims only covering smugglers and illegal immigrants, it is doubtful whether this extraterritorial enforcement power can be abused under the newly enacted #nationalsecuritylaw that covers foreigners.

+193 cases of #Covid_19 today in #Switzerland, at a high test positivity rate. This is terrible.

#Finland has rightfully closed their borders to us, more will follow if this continues.

Solutions to lower the case number, avoid a second wave and at some point reach #CoronaZero:
1) Generally, we need to be #proactive and #creative in our thinking and use our massive scientific and financial resources fully in a targeted and smart manner.
There is no typical Swiss compromise with this virus, this is a fight for our health and economic prosperity like we have not seen since World War II. We need to be humble and learn from the countries that are doing better than us.

This is a really smart piece of journalism about #Switzerland and #coronavirus - a must-read for anyone hoping to understand the delicate machinery in Bern that keeps Switzerland humming.
There are a lot of gems in here including about @UBS_CEO Sergio Ermotti as well as @CreditSuisse.
However, the big reveal here is that #Swiss #coronavirus point person Daniel Koch (the gangly bald guy featured in my #thuglife tweets several times) appears to have badly misjudged the situation as late as March.

#Swiss government prohibits gatherings of more than five people and decides on 32 bln Sfr in aid measures for business; #Zurich is closing the lakeshore, according to @NZZ (which infuriatingly has its real-time coverage of this behind paywall). #coronavirus #Switzerland
This is NOT a lockdown or even a curfew, but the government is stepping up its rhetoric, saying people should "urgently" stay at home. #coronavirus #Switzerland
.@alain_berset says #Swiss government prefers not to impose a full lockdown, appeals to population to be sensible.

"Our own behavior and not a lockdown is what is going to protect us, he says. "A lot depends on our behavior."

The #sanctions against the #BalticSea pipeline decided by the #US #Senate meet with resistance in #Moscow, criticism also came from #German Chancellor #Merkel. The #Kremlin still expects #NordStream2 to be completed.
Meanwhile, #Russia accuses the #UnitedStates of violating the law with pipeline sanctions.The punitive measures #violate international law and are an example of unfair competition, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskow. "Such actions do not please Moscow or the #European capitals;
they do not like #Berlin or #Paris," said Peskow. He accused the #US of violating #international law and "expanding its artificial dominance to the #European market". Chancellor Angela #Merkel has also criticized the #US Congress's sanction resolution.
