In the affair surrounding the corona leak in Alain Berset’s (50, SP) interior department (EDI), other members of the Federal Council have now also spoken out. Your statements show that the revelations of “Switzerland at the weekend” were not yet an issue in the Federal Council as a whole. But: There is an urgent need to speak. Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis (61, FDP) said on SRF radio: “I am convinced that this will be discussed in the Federal Council.”

The newspaper reported last Saturday that Berset’s former head of communications Peter Lauener (52) had continuously sent confidential information about the Federal Council’s planned Covid measures to the CEO of Ringier Verlag, Marc Walder (57). According to the accusation made by special investigator Peter Marti, the information sent to Ringier-Verlag, which also publishes Blick and SonntagsBlick, was intended to put pressure on Berset’s government colleagues.
