FirstPost India: Over the next couple of weeks, a Zurich court could unveil the names of several account holders of Swiss bank Julius Baer, which could include many Indian names.
Julius Baer had until 31 May to object to a Zurich High Court decision to unseal three CDs containing names of several account-holders, but the Swiss bank failed to do so – which could mean that these names could soon be in the public domain.
The fight has been about what is on the CDs, one of which had been given to the newspaper Cash. The prosecution had asked the paper to hand over the CDs, but Cash instead sent them to Julius Baer on the grounds of protecting their sources. The bank argued that they should remain sealed to protect client privacy.
