Tax police request Credit Suisse names

Petition to Swiss authorities in relation to tax-evasion probe

(ANSA) - Rome, July 20 - Italy's finance police have presented a request to the Swiss authorities for the names of the Italian beneficiaries of the Credit Suisse insurance policies at the centre of a tax-evastion probe. That investigation led to an agreement in October for the company to pay 109 million euros to the Italian tax authorities. According to investigators, the policies were a ruse to enable Italian clients to take money over the border and hide it from the taxman.
