Re: SwissLeaks - more bad news for HSBC Private Bank

Now it turns out that the guy who himself signed the "sincere" apology had himself an account at HSBC Private Bank Geneva -

http://www.theguardian.com/business/...liver-revealed

He is "now based in the UK, where HSBC has its headquarters, Gulliver is domiciled in Hong Kong for legal and tax purposes." - nice trick
If you were a dodgy tax evader looking to hide your money in some shady Swiss HSBC account, you would be a bit worried if the CEO of the bank didn't use the same type of account.

Re: SwissLeaks - more bad news for HSBC Private Bank

In his new book, Falciani claims that he was not alone but worked as part of a team of 100 people whose objective was to "get" HSBC Private Bank:

Edward Snowdon "may" have been involved with this team according to this report. Hopefully the book will be available in English soon.
