A computer system employee of Bank Sarasin turned himself into police 1 January, it was revealed late Tuesday, after sharing documents linked to currency transactions made by the family of Philipp Hildebrand, chairman of the Swiss National Bank.
Swiss data protection and privacy laws make it illegal to share such information.
The documents were given to an attorney who is close to the UDC, Switzerland’s right-wing People’s Party.
