Combating economic crime – Summary report on audits by the Swiss Federal Audit Office

Key facts

Between 2015 and 2021, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) carried out 16 audits and evaluations in connection with the fight against economic crime. This work was done in response to a forward-looking initiative launched in 2014 by the former Ticino prosecutor Paolo Bernasconi. This initiative allowed the SFAO to identify several audit topics. To these, we added the results of six audits that did not focus specifically on economic crime. In spring 2022, three areas remained to be explored. The SFAO reviewed these efforts, highlighting the positive aspects but also the areas for improvement.
