Germany Didn’t Pay for Credit Suisse Tax Evader Data, HB Reports

A Credit Suisse employee mistakenly sent the list in June after the bank reached an agreement with the tax office to co- operate and deliver information in September 2011 provided it didn’t breach data-privacy law, the newspaper said.
