Key information

Chairperson of Credit Suisse, Antonio Horta-Osorio, has resigned with immediate effect after it transpired he broke Covid quarantine rules last year to attend the Wimbledon tennis finals.

It further transpired he broke Swiss Covid restrictions when he failed to quarantine for 10 days on his arrival in the country on 28 November 2021, when he left the country again on 01 December 2021. Its unclear whether Mr Horta-Osorio will face any criminal investigation in the UK or Switzerland as a result of these revelations.

The story of a senior public figure flagrantly breaching Covid rules is sadly not a new phenomenon. In recent weeks the government has been plagued by reports of senior government and Downing Street officials breaching covid restrictions in 2020 and 2021. The Prime Minister himself has been implicated in a string of unlawful alleged parties.
