PIxabay Cost of becoming Swiss to be investigated

There is a federal law designed to stop cantons and communes from charging what they like.

Research by the Matin Dimanche newspaper shows it may cost as much as CHF 3,000 in canton Fribourg to CHF 550 in Vaud.

An investigation has been launched to decide if the prices are justified.
