Swisscom caught up in Italian tax scam probe

Noticable news per 18.02.2010 via

An Italian subsidiary of Swiss telecommunications firm Swisscom has been caught up in a tax fraud and money laundering investigation with alleged mafia links.

If the “by far most important provider of telecommunications and IT services in Switzerland” – quote from the Swisscom site – is going to be linked to the Italian mafia, then we have indeed come a long way.

This could be an interesting story. Especially since the former CFO of Swisscom is currently under investigation as well.
