Spain denies Switzerland's extradition request for HSBC whistleblower - High Court

MADRID, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Spain's High Court on Tuesday rejected an extradition request from Switzerland against Herve Falciani for leaking details of thousands of clients of HSBC's private bank, the court said in a ruling.

It was the second time the court rejected an extradition request against Falciani, a French citizen who worked for HSBC, over alleged industrial sabotage in 2008.
