Switzerland Orders German Tax Officials Arrest, Bild Says

March 31 (Bloomberg) -- Switzerland has issued arrest warrants for commercial espionage against three tax inspectors from the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Bild am Sonntag reported in a preview of an article to run today.

The arrest warrants were issued for the purchase in February 2010 of CDs with information on German customers at Credit Suisse, the newspaper said, citing a letter from Swiss authorities received in Dusseldorf yesterday.

The three inspectors risk being arrested if they travel to Switzerland, the newspaper added.
