Spain: Whistleblower Falciani in court to fight extradition request

Bank whistleblower Herve Falciani appeared before Spanish High Court in Madrid on Tuesday as a judge considered an extradition request from Switzerland over alleged industrial sabotage. The hearing lasted 20 minutes. The Prosecutor's Office and his lawyers opposed the extradition request. Leaving the Spanish High Court, Falciani said: «In this context, where we have to protect our economic... Еще interests, the interests of our companies, I mean the Spanish ones, whistleblowers must be protected, because it is the information that some cases do not thrive without consequences.» Falciani, born in Monaco, was employed in the IT department at HSCB in Switzerland before leaking an estimated 130,000 names of tax evaders who were customers at HSCB’s private Swiss bank between 2006 and 2008.
