BERN, April 4 Swiss financial watchdog FINMA has
spoken to Credit Suisse about searches last week at the
Swiss bank's offices in London, Paris and Amsterdam, FINMA Chief
Executive Mark Branson said on Tuesday.
"We are in contact with the bank and will remain in
contact," Branson said at FINMA's annual news conference.
Zurich-based Credit Suisse was pulled into an international
tax evasion and money laundering investigation on Thursday when
coordinated searches were carried out three of its offices.
