An information technology worker at the Geneva office of Mossack Fonseca, the law firm at the centre of the Panama Papers scandal, has been arrested, Switzerland's Le Temps newspaper reported Wednesday.

The paper, citing a source close to the case, said the IT employee had been placed in provisional detention on suspicion of removing a large haul of confidential documents.

The spokesman for the Geneva's prosecutor's office, Henri Della Casa, told AFP that a criminal case had been opened following a complaint filed by Mossack Fonseca.

He declined to comment on whether an arrest had been made.
