A former Swiss banker on Monday handed over to WikiLeaks thousands of documents containing the secret banking details of politicians, multinationals and hedge funds using banking havens to avoid paying taxes.
Rudolf Elmer handed the disks with the information over to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who said his website will publish the data after having verified it.
Elmer began gathering the information while he worked at the offshore Cayman Island trust subsidiary of Bank Julius Baer, one of Switzerland’s top private banks. He no longer works with the bank.
He said the disks held data from 1990 to 2009 on some 2,000 clients of the bank, and claimed that Switzerland’s banking secrecy laws are “damaging” society.

Matthew 24:12 says;
Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
As I have said before on this blog, as we approach the End of this Age, there will be an increase in lawlessness, chaos and anarchy.
Whatever we might think about Switzerland and its secret banking laws (I have no doubt that many of the banking clients that will be exposed by this wikileak were hiding illegitimate monies) they are rules that people trusted in.
This Rudolf Elmer individual took an oath to protect the confidentiality of his clients and they gave his bank money based on their belief that he would uphold that oath and obey the laws behind it. But he decided that the laws were less important than his own perspective on the situation.
He wasn’t the first and he won’t be the last.
Wikileaks has exposed many secrets that people only confided in others because they trusted that the secrets would not be revealed. Because of this website, the very concept of “trust” is being rapidly eroded and no one can be sure of anything anymore. It’s not hard to see how this will lead to “the love of many growing cold.”
