Per Ditlev-Simonsen is a former Mayor of Oslo who resigned after revelations about his Swiss bank account.

Swiss bank account tax probe

In August 2007, the presence of a hitherto unknown Swiss bank account was revealed[By whom?]. The revelation came after an acrimonious divorce involving his daughter, Cecilie Ditlev-Simonsen, the communications director of Norsk Hydro.[1] The account, which contained NOK 1.5 million had been inherited by Ditlev-Simonsen after his wife died in 1990, and he eventually admitted to not having paid the Norwegian wealth tax on it.[2]

The revelation caused several opposition politicians to call for Ditlev-Simonsen's resignation. Erna Solberg, the head of the Norwegian Conservative Party, asked that Ditlev-Simonsen refrain from active campaigning for his party ahead of the local elections scheduled for 10 September. Even if he had not resigned, the 75-year-old Ditlev-Simonsen was set to retire after the election.[3] The incident was believed to have contributed to the Norwegian Conservative's 4 percent drop in opinion polls, three weeks ahead of the election.[4]
