Swiss help Polish corruption probe

Switzerland will disclose to the Polish law enforcement agencies, the list of Swiss bank accounts belonging to Polish politicians.

Justice Minister, Zbigniew Ziobro has launched an investigation into a number of possible cases of corruption by prominent politicians of Poland's former post-communist government.

Some of the politicians suspected of illegal dealings are still prominent figures on the left of the Polish political scene. The disclosure of their deposits on Swiss bank accounts may be a shock to the Polish political scene, said the ruling Law and Justice party MP Jacek Kurski. According to Kurski, these accounts may contain money obtained from corruption and other abuses. That may prove that Poland was in fact robbed by the previously ruling post-communist, said Jacek Kurski.
