I was wrong: you can fight Swiss bureaucrats

In a post yesterday, titled: "India 1: Switzerland 0 - or, Fighting corruption is possible, but how do you fight Swiss bureaucrats?", I argued that India was now better than Switzerland in terms of being able to take on bureaucrats.

A Swiss colleague tells me that I am wrong, that it is quite possible to fight Swiss bureaucrats. Apparently, all that one needs to do is to write a "letter of recourse" to the Department. If that fails, one can write a similar letter to the next level up and so on. In 3 or 4 such letters, you are at the level of the Supreme Court of Switzerland.

I am advising the Swiss lady to write her "letter of recourse".
