Swiss authorities should be involved as early as possible in "huge" cases such as the investigation into alleged tax evasion by clients of Credit Suisse Group AG, the country's attorney general said, elaborating on comments last week expressing frustration that he did not know in advance about raids on the bank's offices.The probe, which is examining possible tax evasion by Credit Suisse clients in the Netherlands, France, Germany, the U.K. and Australia, has left Swiss authorities playing catch-up and raised fresh questions as to whether the country's banks have done enough to clean up their act.These include the Brazilian probe into the "Car wash" bribery scandal, in which Swiss banks were allegedly used to funnel bribes to officials at state-owned oil producer Petroleo Brasileiro SA.
