ZURICH (Reuters) - Credit Suisse CSGN.S will have internal and external panels look into allegations by a Swiss newspaper that another senior executive at the Swiss bank was under surveillance this year.

“Credit Suisse is examining the new information as revealed by the media in internal and external reviews,” a spokesman said in response to an enquiry.

The Neue Zuercher Zeitung paper reported that former human resources chief Peter Goerke was under covert observation in February, suggesting the surveillance of former wealth management boss Iqbal Khan was not an isolated incident as the Swiss bank has said.
