ISLAMABAD: Pakistani Nationals still have billions of rupees in their Swiss Bank accounts, years after it was revealed that black money from Pakistan is largely deposited in the Swiss Banks .

Switzerland National Bank (SNB) on Thursday said the amount of money kept there by Pakistani nationals was recorded at Rs153b at the end of 2016 down from Rs165b in 2015, a fall of 6pc.
