German State Acquires Additional Swiss Bank Data, Bild Says
German tax investigators in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia bought an additional CD with illicit Swiss tax data, Bild newspaper reported, without saying where it received the information.
The latest CD contains data on German withdrawals from Swiss bank accounts, the newspaper reported.
The state’s Finance Ministry declined to confirm or deny the report, Bild said. Officials at the ministry weren’t immediately available to reply to an inquiry by Bloomberg News after working hours.
