Blackmail case involving Federal Councilor Alain Berset

Federal Councilor Alain Berset (48) had unpleasant days. Not only because of the Corona crisis, but also because of an attempt at blackmail that unintentionally heaves him into the spotlight.

The perpetrator tried to extort 100,000 francs with several documents. Should the Freiburg magistrate not comply with the demand, they threatened to make public what was unfavorable for him, as reported by the “SonntagsBlick”. Berset then filed a criminal complaint, and the federal prosecutor’s office convicted the perpetrator.
