Credit Suisse president Antonio Horda-Osorio allegedly violated compulsory prison rules in the UK when he traveled to the country in July to watch the finals of the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
This is the outcome of the bank’s preliminary investigation, according to two sources To Reuters.
To watch the finals of the Wimbledon tournament, Horda-Osorio will travel to the United Kingdom from Switzerland, where he lives, on the weekends of 10 and 11 July 2021. At the time, the UK imposed restrictions on travelers from several European countries, including Switzerland, who had to comply with the 10-day isolation when they arrived in the country – a rule the banker would not have adhered to.
The results of the internal investigation were forwarded to the Board of Directors of the Bank. This committee will decide whether the measures should be applied to Horta-Osório. The banker, who was contacted by Reuters, declined to comment on the matter.
This is the second time that Horta-Osorio has been caught violating the rules relating to Govt-19. When he arrived in Switzerland in November this year, he admitted that he had violated the rules that imposed the ten-day isolation period. Horda-Osorio landed on November 28 and left the country on December 1, not even three days in the country. The case is being investigated by Swiss authorities and you could be fined 5,000 Swiss francs (, 4,800).
