A data leak from Credit Suisse, Switzerland’s second-largest bank, reveals account details of more than 30,000 customers – some of them unsavory – including inadequate background checks on many customers, a German newspaper and other media reported. local.
Through a statement, Credit Suisse strongly rejected the accusations and innuendos about the bank’s alleged business practices.
The German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung received the data anonymously through a digital mailbox more than a year ago. He said it’s unclear whether the source was an individual or a group, and the newspaper made no payments or promises.
The newspaper evaluated data spanning the 1940s well into the past decade, along with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and dozens of media partners, including The New York Times and The Guardian.
Thus, the data suggests that the bank accepted corrupt autocrats, alleged war criminals and human traffickers, drug traffickers and other criminals as clients.
And as if by magic, Credit Suisse immediately said that it has thoroughly reviewed a large number of accounts potentially associated with the complaints, and it turns out that 90 percent of them are closed today or were in the process of being closed before receiving the inquiries. from the press.
The truth is that with new technologies and globalization, there is nothing hidden under the sun, and as much as banking institutions want to disappear data and turn a blind eye, it is difficult for them to reject uncomfortable customers who ultimately leave them juicy profits. We see this and the story will continue in various tax havens around the world.
Take it with interest.- The voice actor Victor Trujillo, brozoreacted to the protest carried out by a group of journalists inside the Legislative Palace of San Lázaro to demand labor improvements and protection from the violence that has plagued this sector, since so far in 2022 in Mexico five communicators have been murdered.
AND brozo on his twitter account he referred to the journalist and historian Francisco Zarco, who defended freedom of expression in Mexico during the Reform: “The press is not only the most powerful weapon against tyranny and despotism, but also the most effective and active instrument of progress and civilization.
It is true that the Fourth Estate concept that referred to journalism has been relieved by the risk to freedom of expression. However, the media in Mexico have exercised that power to a greater or lesser extent, even when there have been stages in which they have been pressured or co-opted to reduce their dominance and influence. In the Mexico of the 1960s and 1970s, freedom of expression -and with it the fourth power- was subject to two factors emanating from the Executive: the supply of paper and official advertising.
plausible defense that brozo makes the journalistic guild, sometimes it seems that as in a time machine, we do not go back to the past; However, the media today show that they have the power to fully fulfill their function of informing, and to be an indispensable instrument for the exercise of democracy in Mexico.
Take it carefully.- The Kremlin does not rule out a possible summit between the presidents of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and the United States, Joe Biden, to address the military tension around Ukraine, but considered it premature to talk about that possibility.
There is now a clear understanding of the need to continue dialogue at the ministerial level, Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov said.
He added that so far there are planned contacts between the Secretary of State of the United States, Antony Blinken, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Serguel Lavrov, as well as between the latter and his French counterpart, Jean-Yves Le Drian.
French President Emmanuel Macron proposed Sunday to the leaders of Russia and the United States to hold a summit on security in Europe.
All that remains for us is to implore reason to prevail over unreason and peace over war, which means the absence of conflict. Living together in peace consists of accepting differences, and having the ability to listen, recognize, respect and appreciate others, as well as living in a peaceful and united way.
We hope that dialogue will be promoted and conflicts resolved in a spirit of mutual understanding and cooperation for the good of all, we have already suffered enough globally with the Covid pandemic. Let’s make peace and not war…
