Hyposwiss Names Convicted Money Launderer Hans Bodmer to Board

A lawyer who pleaded guilty to a money laundering conspiracy and testified for U.S. prosecutors in a bribery case was reappointed to the board of a Swiss bank that the government said he used in the criminal scheme.

Hyposwiss Private Bank Zurich announced Hans Bodmer’s appointment in a June 6 press release that didn’t mention his 2004 guilty plea in Manhattan federal court or his testimony at the 2009 bribery trial. The Zurich-based wealth manager also named Adolf Real, chairman of the Liechtenstein Bankers Association, to its board.
