BERLIN, GERMANY - JULY 16: The Swiss flag flies over the Swiss Embassy as the German flag flies over the Reichtsag behind on July 16, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. Authorities in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia announced recently that they had bought a data CD containing the names of 1,000 German citizens who are using a Switzerland-based bank to evade paying taxes in Germany. The announcement is not the first instance of German tax authorities buying similar CDs, and as a consequence of the incidents Germany and Switzerland have reached an agreement over the assets of German citizens deposited in Swiss banks, though the agreement has not yet become law.
