The new deputy director of the tax office lives in France.

Some cantonal MPs say it’s a security risk if he takes confidential information home.

But the Finance Minister, Serge Dal Busco, says there is no need for concern. Tax information can’t be accessed remotely and his laptop and phone are encrypted.
