White-Collar Crime

The White-Collar Crime Division has responsibility for serious cases of international or intercantonal white-collar crime. This primarily involves cases of international corruption and money laundering and other economic offences of national or international importance. It also deals with proceedings related to stock market offences (insider dealing, market manipulation) and major phishing cases. Generally the cases have a substantial international dimension, making cooperation with foreign prosecution authorities through mutual legal assistance procedures the order of the day. The Division has staff in all the OAG’s offices (Bern, Zurich, Lausanne and Lugano).
