Swiss lawmakers rejected a deal to hand over 4,450 names of wealthy Americans who held secret offshore accounts with Swiss bank UBS.
The rejection of the bill, which was voted 104 to 76, with 16 abstentions, came even as Switzerland’s upper house had last week voted for it.
The bill would now go back to the upper house, which could decide to send it once more to the lower house for a fresh vote. But Switzerland has only until 18 June to ratify the bill as the summer parliamentary session ends at that time.
Even if the lower house passes the bill, there is always the risk that the bill may be put to a popular nationwide referendum, just like Iceland did this year, when it was forcibly asked to repay money to the UK and the Netherlands for its banks, Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander and IceSave collapsing during the global financial crisis.

The one who hides the money for the thief, is no way better than the thief it self.
When Nazi-Germany fell, many people accused the German leaders of storing away gold and money stolen from the Jews in Swiss bank accounts. Switzerland has never come up with evidence, that this accusation is wrong.
Every dictator on Earth has a presumed secret bank account in Switzerland. The nation on the heart of Europe is the thief’s best friend, the main culprits behind the impossibility of getting rid of corruption.
The biggest day time full robbery of a nation, is the acts of around 80.000 Indians who has secret Swiss accounts. A leaked report from the Swiss Banking Association displayed that 1,5 Trillion USD has been stored up by this Indians. This if the biggest looting that has ever has taken place in World history. An no one seems to care, or being able to do anything about it.
The love of money is the root of all kind of evils.
1. Timothy 6:10.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
