An international panel that audited Swiss banks for dormant Holocaust-era accounts is disbanding. Late last year, the Volcker Commission issued a report recommending that Swiss banking officials publish more than 25,000 accounts that may be connected to Holocaust victims. The Swiss officials, however, have not followed through on that recommendation or on several others made by the panel.
