To,

His Excellency President of Federal Republic of Switzerland,

Through, Swiss Ambassador to India

 

His Excellencies,

 

Many thanks Your Excellency, Sir, for prompt response: referred below after this representations with reference to my representations dated 5th and 9th May 2005.

 

I have studied all the documents referred in the aforesaid Email officially forwarded through email ID: Ruchita.Jindal@ndh.rep.admin.ch. The aforesaid documents, including speech by H.E. Mr. Eric Martin, Ambassador, Head of the Economic and Financial Affairs Division Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, given at JCIF - Japan Center for International Finance, Tokyo, Japan on February 18th, 2004 containing clear contradictions between "anonymous accounts" do not exist in Switzerland” and that “The developments on the international scene that are aimed at promoting a broader exchange of information cannot be separated from the fact that any easing of the observation of confidentiality in Switzerland would certainly be welcomed by various rival financial centres, which would be only too happy to welcome certain assets currently deposited in our country.”

 

After examining the aforesaid documents it is ample clear that an important issue has never been raised, negotiated or discussed neither at UNO level nor even between any two or more countries levels that who is competent to decide the nature of "anonymous accounts": the country where such accounts are opened, runs and operated or the country wherefrom illegal money transferred? I would like to refer this important question based on my own experiences. I know that the accounts relates to the followings facts, were never considered by the Swiss Authorities as "anonymous accounts", while, in fact whenever full facts would be discloses, they cannot be considered beyond the scope and meaning of the "anonymous accounts":

1.    I have referred one issue in my letter dated 29th April 2005, to Your Excellency, relates to payment of alleged Commission paid by one Monopoly House from India. In fact such commission was paid to a company from Switzerland belongs to ex-Pilot of the Super Boss of the Purchasing Company i.e. the Monopoly House in India. Said Pilot was also another Company in USA. Money was transferred to Switzerland through Official Root with the help of corrupt public servants. When, I raised this issue with the Chairman, of that Company in my capacity as Shareholder of that Company, I started to receive anonymous threats and Important National Newspaper was managed, under Full Page large-scale advertisements.

2.    One long time assistant, (who still is his assistant) to one Important National Politician in India, during in a meeting with me, reported that his Superior is going every year for one month’s tour for out side India including about 15 Days for Switzerland and he and his son has a large some money more than Rs.1,000 Crores (200 Million US Dollars) in abroad, transferred and managed through Switzerland. I have raised voice against Nexus between the said Politician and one Mafiadom, thus I suffered severe attempt to murder and my son also suffered another Attempt to murder through staged Truck Accident, committed under Police Protection. It is reported that son of said Politician has chain connection with Dawood Ibrahim, through one Jai Chand lal Sethia, and one accused in one famous Bomb Blast case in a Metro City. The respective Politician is so influential that even CVC or CBI are unable to take appropriate actions on my repeated Complaints and I am still living under constant and serious threats, not only to lives and liberties but also to my Fundamental Rights, as I have referred in detail in one of my Book of 416 Pages.  

 

Therefore this is my Humble submissions that in considerations of the ground realty Switzerland should change its mindset from “any easing of the observation of confidentiality in Switzerland would certainly be welcomed by various rival financial centres, which would be only too happy to welcome certain assets currently deposited in our country’, and should lead to built International voice against such number of alleged countries of the OECD having offshore financial centres within their zones of influence, to compel them to follow in accordance with the International requirements, and at the same time Switzerland should agree in principle to make voluntarily disclosures of all information relating to Bank Accounts or Asset Management Accounts opened, runs or managed by any foreign national, since 1948, in any Bank working in Switzerland, and to make appropriate changes in its laws.                    

 

My aforesaid demand is most genuine and logical, because even under the existing Laws a foreigner cannot open or run a Bank Account without knowledge of authorities concerned from his own country, therefore, the principle of the "protection of privacy" cannot be applied in respect of any account opened by a foreign citizen. Furthermore, whether any account is "anonymous account" or not, can be decided only by a country, from where a citizen transfer illegal money and then open or run account in another country.       

 

After “strict application of the "Know-your-customer" to fight against financial crime’ Switzerland, through all Banks working in Switzerland knows about details about all Bank Accounts opened, runs, or operates in Switzerland or transferred the money through Switzerland, to any third Country, by the Foreign Nationals.

 

Therefore, in view of the aforesaid, I am unable to agree that Switzerland is not protecting any illegal money lying in "anonymous accounts" or "anonymous assets" managed by Banks working in Switzerland. Hence, I would like to inform you that stand taken and informed by me in my Letter dated 9th May 2005 stands as it was that, unless within 30 days from the date of receipt of the said Letter, if Switzerland Government would not agree in principle, to withdraw such wrong part of the Official Policy, that “Switzerland does not intend to participate in a system that calls for an automatic exchange of information, particularly with respect to the money illegally deposited by the Corrupt Indian Politicians, Bureaucrats and unscrupulous businessmen, in Switzerland Banks without knowledge of the authority concerned” after fixing a date, I will sit for “INDEFINITE FAST” outside Swiss Embassy at New Delhi (India).

 

With Best Regards,

Yours truly,
