Rudolf Elmer: the man who broke the Cayman bank secrecy law by publishing sensitive client data from Bank Julius Baer on WikiLeaks. Back in Switzerland Elmer was stalked by private investigators, publicly defamed and socially isolated. He lost his job three times and has no secure income. He is still prosecuted by the bank and by the State of Zurich. But he keeps blowing the whistle… for the break-up with an unjust system and the rescue of the public good.
