Zurich, 15 October 2015 – This preliminary information, which contains wrong statements, was partially corrected by Handelszeitung for today’s print edition. However, the newspaper did not send the corrected version to the media, which has resulted in today’s wrong reports in several newspapers.
Bank Julius Baer will take all available means to defend its interests against the damaging statements that are without any foundation. In particular, the Bank will take legal action against Handelszeitung and the author, Lukas Hässig. A short while ago, the author has already published wrong statements without any foundation on the same topic.
