Switzerland needs to apologise to Italy
"Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey summoned Italy's ambassador in Bern to explain why financial police's largely targeted Italian branches of Swiss banks Tuesday as part of their crackdown on cross-border tax evasion. . . Italian authorities had acted in a "discriminatory" fashion."
We've got a suggestion for Calmy-Rey. It would be more appropriate to summon Italy's ambassador, then prostrate yourself and beg forgiveness for the abusive behaviour of Swiss banks on Italian territory, for Swiss banks' roles in assisting rich Italians to get poor Italians to pay their taxes for them, for Swiss banks' handling of the proceds of crime, and for their general contempt for Italy. Then, perhaps, summon the German ambassador and do the same. Then the French ambassador.
Better still, a world tour.
