Switzerland meets all standards on fighting money-laundering - gov't

ZURICH, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Switzerland complies with international standards on fighting money laundering, the government said on Monday while declining to comment specifically on media reports that Credit Suisse did business with disreputable characters.

“Today, Switzerland meets all international standards on the exchange of information in tax matters and on fighting against money laundering, terrorist financing and corruption. Switzerland has been participating in the international automatic exchange of information on account data since 2017, now with over 100 countries,” the finance ministry’s State Secretariat for International Finance said in an emailed statement.
