(Studio: Hilary Bowker) The admission by Switzerland that Jewish refugees were returned to Nazi Germany under a secret deal made in 1938 and the separate controversy over the refusal of Swiss banks to return gold looted by the Nazis from Jews reported. Interview held with British Parliament member Greville Janner and Swiss ambassador to the United States Carlo Jagnetti about the gold that is being held in Switzerland. [JANNER - says huge quantities of gold were moved into Switzerland and should be given back to its owners.] [JAGNETTI - says Switzerland is seriously looking into the dormant accounts, but it will take some time--maybe years--to do the right thing.] [JANNER - says Switzerland is only acting now in response to the outrage about their hiding of the gold.]

Bowker, Hilary
