Swiss back curbs on executive pay in referendum
Swiss voters have overwhelmingly backed proposals to impose some of the world's strictest controls on executive pay, final referendum results show.
Nearly 68% of the voters supported plans to give shareholders a veto on compensation and ban big payouts for new and departing managers.
The vote came just days after the EU approved measures to cap bankers bonuses, as Theo Leggett explains.
