- Bloomberg.com: UBS banker a fugitive - "Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Raoul Weil, the former UBS AG official indicted on a charge of conspiring to help 20,000 wealthy Americans hide assets from the Internal Revenue Service, was declared a fugitive by a U.S. judge.
Weil, 49, former chairman of global wealth management at UBS in Zurich, was indicted Nov. 6 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. UBS, the largest Swiss bank, helped wealthy American clients evade taxes with false documents after agreeing in 2001 to identify account holders and tell the IRS about their income, the U.S. alleged."
