GENEVA, April 3
GENEVA, April 3 (Reuters) - France's former budget minister Jerome Cahuzac has given Swiss authorities permission to pass his bank account details to judges in Paris who are investigating him, the office of Geneva's public prosecutor said in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement said Geneva prosecutor Yves Bertossa had acted on a French request to obtain documents from UBS and Reyl & Cie, the two banks involved. It said Cahuzac had had a Swiss account since 1992.
