No, the mandatory part has to stay in a blocked account here until you reach retirement age.

Payout of the pension fund to persons moving to an EU / EFTA member state

Anyone leaving Switzerland to settle in an EU/EFTA member state, may generally not cash in their pension from the compulsory pension plan as persons in the new country of domicile are insured by law to receive old age, survivors' and invalidity benefits. The mandatory portion of your pension assets must therefore remain in a blocked account (vested benefits account or policy) in Switzerland and can only be paid out when you reach retirement age. The extra-mandatory portion of your pension, however, may be paid out in cash. The mandatory and extra-mandatory portions of your pension are listed on the personal insurance certificate under the heading ‘Retirement provision information’.
'may generally not' however in many cases you can if you go to the UK or France where it's not compulsory to carry such insurance by law.
Google Swiss LOB guarantee fund for more info.

Pllar II is in 2 parts, any extra obligatory can ALWAYS be reclaimed.
