Documents leaked by whistleblower Hervé Falciani, who worked for HSBC, show how a Swiss division of the U.K.-headquartered bank routinely allowed clients to withdraw bricks of cash, often in foreign currencies of little use in Switzerland; aggressively marketed schemes likely to enable wealthy clients to avoid European and U.S. taxes; colluded with some clients to conceal undeclared "black" accounts from their domestic tax authorities; and provided accounts to international criminals, corrupt businessmen, and other high-risk individuals.

The documents, which were originally stolen by former HSBC IT worker Herve Falciani in 2007, alleged that billions of dollars transited through the bank as customers from around the world tried to dodge taxes in their home countries or laundered dodgy procedes through offshore shell corporations.
...
Switzerland had so far only launched an investigation against Falciani.
Falciani himself said last week that the media reports on the documents' contents were based on just a fraction of the files he handed over to French authorities.
"This is only the tip of the iceberg," the 43-year-old Franco-Italian told France's Le Parisien newspaper.
Falciani remains wanted on data theft charges, but France and Spain have offered him protection by refusing to extradite him to Switzerland.

A 37-year-old computer security specialist named Hervé Falciani stole the huge cache of data in 2007 and gave it to the French government.
...
None of this would have surfaced had it not been for this man: Hervé Falciani, an HSBC computer security specialist at the Geneva, Switzerland, branch. He stole the data in 2007. He likes that he's been called the Edward Snowden of Swiss banking. Now a fugitive living in France, he says he grew disillusioned with what he saw at HSBC and began to download "proof" of illegal tax evasion: those internal bank files.
...
Hervé Falciani: No.
...
Hervé Falciani: Exactly. Exactly.
...
Hervé Falciani: Friends, let's say, partners give-- gave me these datas.
...
Hervé Falciani: Of course. I am not the only person in banking system that wants to raise alarm.
But Swiss authorities say Falciani acted alone. When they came looking for him, he fled to France and turned over his files to French authorities.
...
About six years ago, Falciani gave the French eight DVDs of encrypted data.
...
As for Hervé Falciani, he's still a wanted man. In December, Swiss authorities charged him with industrial espionage. He says he's a whistleblower. The Swiss say he's a thief. His ex-girlfriend considers him a conman. When Falciani first took the files, she traveled with him to Beirut. She told a British filmmaker he had hoped to sell the data and make millions.
She says she discovered he was a liar and a manipulator. Falciani says he shopped the files around Beirut, hoping to set off alarms and trigger an investigation back in Switzerland. But, as we learned after spending time with Falciani, the truth can be illusive.
...
Hervé Falciani: Of course not. She didn't know at the time.
...
Hervé Falciani: Yeah.
...
Hervé Falciani: Excuse me. Who is not manipulating? Manipulating just the way to proceed, to convince that what you're doing is important. Is nothing more than that. Everyone is manipulating.
Falciani did trigger an international alert for his arrest. He became a man on the run. Over the next four years, his strange saga became absolutely bizarre. He says there were attempts on his life and that he was kidnapped by Israeli Mossad intelligence agents, things we could not substantiate.
What we know for sure is that he ended up in a Spanish jail for five months, fighting extradition, and made court appearances wearing disguises, saying he feared for his life.
...
Hervé Falciani: Yeah, this is real.
...
Hervé Falciani: (laugh) Yeah. But I can assure you I was not prepared for that.
Today, he's a hero in parts of Europe for helping recover billions in unpaid taxes. He says he hasn't profited from any of this and has been reduced to collecting unemployment.
...
Hervé Falciani: I want it, of course.
...
Hervé Falciani: But I knew that in Europe it was impossible.
...
Hervé Falciani: Yeah, common profits.
...
When the interview with Falciani was over, the man responsible for the biggest breach and leak in Swiss banking history left the way he'd arrived at our meeting...through the streets of Paris on his scooter.
