Swiss judiciary negligent in fighting corruption

Swiss law enforcement paints a bad picture when it comes to fighting corruption. The organization Transparency International sees a lack of criminal prosecution and the often necessary intervention of foreign judiciary in money laundering cases as proof of this.

Public prosecutors in Switzerland have so far failed to create the necessary legal certainty: In terms of corruption and money laundering, the organization Transparency International sees a need to catch up (symbol image).

Companies involved in corruption and money laundering are only very rarely convicted in Switzerland, according to a statement by Transparency International Switzerland on Friday in a report published on the same day. This is largely due to the negligence of the public prosecutor’s office.

To a large extent, these are dependent on the active assistance of the offending companies if they are to be held criminally responsible.
