In a country with a highly developed system of direct democracy, voters must be able to trust what elected officials and other prominent figures in the public eye are saying.

Our aim is to verify factual claims made about Switzerland and draw a conclusion about their accuracy.  We do this by examining the facts and providing context using publicly available information. 

Our fact checks are objective and our choice of claims to verify is impartial.
