Whistleblowers convicted after having an earlier acquittal quashed

We had no choice....

The two whistleblowers inside the Zurich Social Welfare Office have been convicted for breach of official secrecy. The Zurich Court of Appeal quashed the acquittal order of the District Court of September 2009.

Wyler Esther and Margrit Zopfi leaked internal documents about deficiencies in the social welfare office of the city of Zurich to WeltWoche after having first notified superiors of fraud and irregularities.
