Four More Go Down But One Receives Get Out Of Jail for Free Card
Posted by William Byrnes on August 6, 2015
A couple days ago Bank EKI Genossenschaft (Bank EKI) entered into a non prosecution agreement with the US Department of Justice, admitting it assisted US taxpayer with tax evasion. Privatbank Reichmuth & Co., Banque Cantonale du Jura SA and Banca Intermobiliare di Investimenti e Gestioni (Suisse) SA then today announced their non-prosecution agreements. One bank will pay no penalty, while the other three will pay penalties $400,000, $2.6 million, and $970,000 respectively, and turn over client records.
The banks started with 201 clients among them in 2008, but one bank closed its non-compliant accounts and thus has been received a “get out of jail” free.
