Black Money: Two Indian women named by Swiss Authorities

New Delhi, May 26: Switzerland in its official gazette has made public the names of two Indian women among scores of foreign nationals with Swiss bank accounts for being probed in their respective countries.

The Swiss Federal Tax Administration (FTA) has asked the two women, Snehlata Sawhney and Sangita Sawhney, to file an appeal within 30 days before the Federal Administrative Court if they do not want their details to be shared with the Indian authorities under their mutual assistance treaty on tax matters.

At least 40 such "final notices" have been published in the Swiss Federal Gazette so far this month, while more such names are expected to be published going forward.
