A mountainous, hence easily defended country in central Europe which has established itself as a world banking center.

Switzerland was one of the first three countries which complied with the European Parliament's directive to investigate Operation Gladio.[1]

History

Switzerland's mountainous (easily defended) nature recommends it as a haven for cash. Together with banking secrecy laws, this has made it the destination of choice for people secreting money, e.g. to avoid accountability. It was neutral in WWI and WWII.

Banking

The Bank of International Settlements (the central bankers' central bank) is based in Basel, Switzerland.

Deep events

Banking secrecy laws mean that Switzerland is an attractive location for funds of dubious origins. The Swiss-Italian border became notorious after border guards caught people attempting or suspected of planning to take bearer bonds from Italy to Switzerland. The amounts involved are quite staggering - one hundred billion dollars or more, on even trillions of US dollars.[2][3][4][5]

The general pattern is that the perpetrators to be arrested, but names and/or nationalities and other basic information not to be disclosed, and the commercially-controlled media to quickly lose interest in the story. The involved parties are often released for undisclosed reasons - quite consistent with the thesis that these are the visible traces of large financial crimes by deep state groups.

School

Compulsory school attendance is relatively low in Switzerland, only 9 years.[6]

Full article: Mohamed El Ghanem

The Swiss government imprisoned Dr. Mohamed El Ghanem, an Egyptian refugee, without charge for seven years, from 2007 through 2013, after he refused to spy on Geneva's Muslim community leaders. He was released after the Swiss Supreme Court ruled his detention wrongful, and required he be released in October 2013.
