As it was explained in our previous communication, Hervé Falciani, (the computer specialist who provided several Courts of Justice from different countries with information about over 130 000 big tax evaders' bank accounts in Switzerland, obtained when he was working for HSBC bank) is the candidate of Citizens' Network Partido X (a citizens' device for media guerrilla that serves the purpose of participating in electoral scenarios, and hacking political systems, in order to achieve a XXI century democracy.
The project was launched a year and a half ago by a group of 15M/Indignados activists and has steadily grown quite fast) for the european elections, May 2014. We think that this candidature is a hack that gives the Spanish and European citizens, and also the International Community, the opportunity to explain how the political class is in collusion with the financial elites and to report it, to fight against this practice and to establish mechanisms to control it. The participation of Falciani in the European Parliament and the work and projects already initiated by Citizens' Network Partido X, will contribute to put an end to the impunity of big tax evaders. About Hervé Falciani Tal y como os explicábamos en nuestra anterior comunicación, Hervé Falciani (el informático que ha aportado a la justicia de varios países información que extrajo mientras trabajaba en el banco HSBC sobre más de 130.000 cuentas en Suiza de grandes evasores fiscales) será el candidato a las elecciones Europeas de Mayo de este año por la Red Ciudadana Partido X (un dispositivo ciudadano de guerrilla de la comunicación para la intervención en espacios electorales y para hackear los sistemas políticos con la idea de una democracia del siglo XXI, lanzado hace un año y medio por un grupo de activistas del 15M y que ha crecido imparablemente en muy poco tiempo)

Hervé Falciani goes on trial in his absence over HSBC data
Monday, 9 November, 2015 Hervé Falciani, a former IT contractor for HSBC Private Bank (Suisse), is being tried in absentia in Switzerland charged with 'qualified industrial espionage', unauthorised obtaining of data, breach of trade secrecy, and violation of banking secrecy. Falciani is believed to have copied the records of tens of thousands of HSBC clients onto a CD in 2006. When the breach was discovered, the Swiss authorities investigated and soon began to suspect Falciani, who, by this point, was living in France. The prosecutor, Carlo Bulletti, is demanding a six-year jail sentence for Falciani.
