News Summary: French minister denies Swiss account
By The Associated Press
SECRET ACCOUNT: The Mediapart website reported that Cahuzac had a secret Swiss bank account until 2010, when the funds were transferred to Singapore. It was not clear if the site contends the account is still open.
CRACKDOWN: Cahuzac has led France's campaign against tax evasion this year. Governments across Europe have cracked down on the practice of avoiding higher tax bills in one country by opening secret accounts in another.
