Hervé Falciani is a computer engineer who discovered a huge amount of tax fraud cases to national treasuries while he was an employee at the central office of HSBC in Switzerland.
Falciani recorded 130,000 bank accounts out of which18,000 correspond to customer accounts of French, Italian and Spanish, both from individuals and companies.
The Swiss government has requested Spain to extradite Falciani, they want to prosecute him for stealing confidential information of HSBC costumers.

Last week’s developments about Falciani’s court case in 4 languages:
- A former HSBC employee wanted in Switzerland on allegations of stealing data on tens of thousands of bank accounts came before a Spanish court on Monday for extradition proceedings
Hervé Falciani stated in court (under oath) that he never tried to sell the data or take any sort of benefit for himself out of this information, he claims he does this because he feels it is his responsibility as a citizen.
