The government did not seek information of Bangladeshis who have bank accounts in Switzerland.
Switzerland Ambassador to Bangladesh Nathalie Chuard said this in responding to a question of a journalist at a programme of Diplomatic Correspondent Association of Bangladesh (DCAB) at the National Press Club on Wednesday.
“The Swiss ambassador said the Bangladesh government did not seek information about the money deposited in the Swiss banks by Bangladeshis. Switzerland continues operations to correct Swiss banks’ errors. I want to tell you Switzerland is not a safe place to keep black money”, she said.
The ambassador said Switzerland is not a paradise for keeping black money. There are many misconceptions about this. The Bangladesh government did not seek any specific information to the Swiss government. The Swiss government is continuing to work to correct the mistakes of the Swiss banks.
