Jan. 20 (Bloomberg) — Rudolf Elmer, who handed over bank client data to Wikileak’s Julian Assange this week, was arrested in Zurich late yesterday as prosecutors investigate possible breaches of the country’s banking secrecy laws.

Elmer, a former employee of Julius Baer Group Ltd., on Jan. 17 handed two compact discs to Assange, the Zurich prosecutor said in an e-mailed statement. Prosecutor Peter Pellegrini will give details on the arrest today.
