HSBC whistleblower Falciani says won't attend Swiss trial

Herve Falciani, an ex-employee of HSBC's (HSBA.L) Geneva private bank who leaked information on clients and their tax situation, said he would not attend his trial next week on charges of breaking Swiss bank secrecy rules.Falciani said on Wednesday he would be willing to explain his position to a court in another country, for example the European Court of Human Rights. "I won't do it in Switzerland where the conditions for a just and fair trial are, in my opinion, not met," Falciani told a news conference that was webcast from the French town of Divonne-les-Bains near the Swiss border.
