WikiLeaks given data on Swiss bank accounts

A former Swiss banker has passed on data containing account details of 2,000 prominent people to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, BBC said. The data – which is not yet available on the WikiLeaks website – was held on two discs handed over by Rudolf Elmer at a press conference in London. Assange promised full disclosure once the information had been vetted. Elmer is scheduled to go on trial in Switzerland on Wednesday for breaking bank secrecy laws. The banker, who has given data to WikiLeaks before, was fired from Swiss bank Julius Baer in 2002.
