(Reuters) – A former executive of Credit Suisse Group AG (S:) told top bank executives as well as U.S. and Swiss authorities that she was put under surveillance in July 2017 while in a dispute with the bank, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.
The executive, Colleen Graham, who worked for a joint venture, called Signac, half owned by Credit Suisse, said she believed a woman followed her over three days, allegedly in retaliation over her stance on an accounting issue at the joint venture, according to the report https://www.wsj.com/articles/former-executive-at-credit-suisse-joint-venture-alleges-bank-spied-on-her-11576094110?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1, citing filings released by a U.S. labor court.
The alleged incident took place two years before a spying scandal involving ex-wealth management chief Iqbal Khan, according to the report.
A U.S. representative for Credit Suisse did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment.
