German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed as a “starting point” reform pledges made by Greece in return for a four-month extension to its bailout program.“This is good news considering what was being said only weeks ago,” Merkel said, adding however that “much work lies ahead” in talks between Athens and its international creditors.Greece’s new left-wing government secured the four-month extension – pending approval by the Greek and German parliaments – after promising to implement reforms and honour its financial commitments.The breathing space beyond a Saturday deadline prevents the immediate worst-case scenario of national bankruptcy, a run on banks or even a chaotic exit from the eurozone.“This is about Greece as well as the euro as a whole,” Merkel said at a joint press conference in Berlin with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Loefven.“That’s why I welcome that we have found a starting point for discussions with the new government. “I welcome that, through the Greek proposals received yesterday, we were able to reassert the principle of performance and reward. And that is indeed the starting point.”Recent days had shown that “we are capable of compromise,” which she called a European virtue.“Much work lies ahead, but the fact that we are now at a point, that we can call a starting point, to again extend the existing program, and that this is what Greece requested, I see that as a result of the ability to compromise shown in recent weeks … and that’s the path we must pursue now.”She added: “I’m under no illusion that the way ahead will remain challenging.”Merkel, a champion of painful economic reforms and austerity in crisis-hit EU member states, has urged her conservative party to back the bailout extension in a parliament vote Friday.Most Germans oppose more European aid for Athens, fearing they will ultimately pay the bill.Only 21 per cent are in favour of a green light from the German parliament Friday, according to a survey by the Insa Institute for Bild daily published Wednesday.German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble stressed that Greece will not receive “a single euro” until it meets the pledges of its existing bailout program.Greece has already received 240 billion euros in loans via two bail-out program, the first concluded in 2010 and the second in 2012, which is the program that is set to be extended by four months.The German press has reported on discussions within the ruling coalition in Berlin about a third aid package, worth about 20 billion euros — but the finance ministry said Wednesday it was “too early” to discuss such a package.“We are extending the second plan until the end of June,” said ministry spokesman Martin Jaeger.“It is currently too early to talk about a third plan. What they are doing now is to conclude the second plan successfully. All other considerations are secondary,” Jaeger said.Source: AFP Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

New Delhi/Berne: Amid a continuing crackdown on Swiss bank account holders with suspected illicit money, Switzerland has stepped up its process to share details of such individuals with Potluri Rajamohan Rao being the latest Indian national to get a notice in this regard. At least 14 Indians, with accounts in Switzerland-based banks, were issued notices by the Swiss authorities last month, in which they have been given one last chance to appeal against sharing of their details with India. Also Read – Pak activated 20 terror camps & 20 launch pads along LoCAccording to officials, many more such notices are in the offing in the coming weeks as India has sought details about a large number of Indian clients of Swiss banks who are suspected to have indulged in illicit financial activities. The latest such notice was issued to one Potluri Rajamohan Rao on May 28, asking him to file an appeal, if any, within ten days in connection with the ‘administrative assistance’ sought by the Indian authorities. In the preceding week, at least 11 such notices were issued on a single day, May 21, to various Indian clients of the Swiss banks, as per the Swiss government gazette notifications. Also Read – Two squadrons which participated in Balakot airstrike awarded citationsSwitzerland has been striving hard to re-establish its global financial centre position after clamping down on secrecy walls of its banks and there has been a significant surge in the number of cases where it has initiated process to share information on Indians with Swiss bank accounts. Except for his date of birth (July 15, 1951) and his Indian residency, the notification issued by the Federal Tax Administration, Switzerland, did not disclose any further details of Rao. However, officials said Rao has been associated with various businesses in southern states of India, including in the telecom business. An analysis of the notifications issued by the FTA, the nodal department for sharing of information on foreign clients of Swiss banks, shows that the Swiss government has stepped up its efforts in sharing such details with a number of countries in the recent months, but the surge in India-related cases is noticeable in the past few weeks. However, the gazette notifications of the Swiss government has redacted full names for several of them while making public only their initials besides the nationality and the dates of birth. The Indians whose names have been mentioned in full also included Krishna Bhagwan Ramchand, Kalpesh Harshad Kinariwala, Ratan Singh Chowdhury, Kuldip Singh Dhingra and Anil Bhardwaj. However, no further details have been disclosed about them as well. In these notices, the individuals or their authorised representatives have been asked to file their appeals, if any, within 30 days (10 days in some cases) with necessary documentary proof to support their case against providing ‘administrative assistance’ to India, which broadly means sharing of `their banking and other financial details. Several of these names are said to have figured in the leaked HSBC lists and Panama papers which allegedly contained names of Indians with Swiss bank accounts and are being probed by Indian authorities in alleged black money cases. While some notices were issued in April also, Switzerland had issued such notices in March to Mumbai-based Geodesic Ltd and its three directors (Prashant Sharad Mulekar, Pankajkumar Onkar Srivastava and Kiran Kulkarni), as also to Chennai-based Aadhi Enterprises Pvt Ltd, who are being probed by the Indian authorities for alleged money laundering and other financial irregularities. Switzerland was widely known as an alleged safe haven for black money before it bowed down before the global pressure and agreed to bring down the famed secrecy walls that had historically surrounded the Swiss banks, provided the requesting country gave proof for financial irregularities done by the concerned person or the company. Along with several other countries, India has also been making use of this change in the stance of Switzerland by seeking details of suspected black money hoarders in Swiss banks and it has already got back information in a large number of cases in the last few years. While the Swiss government documents did not disclose specific details related to the information and assistance sought by the Indian authorities regarding these Indian companies and individuals, such an ‘administrative assistance’ follows submission of proof about financial and tax-related wrongdoings and typically involves sharing of information relating to bank account details and other financial data. While Switzerland has always denied being a safe haven for black money, it has begun sharing details for last few years with several countries including India after submission of evidence about financial and tax-related wrongdoings of the clients of Swiss banks.
