Telling Swiss Secrets

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Michael Bronner talks about his interview with Bradley Birkenfeld, the UBS whistleblower who was responsible for exposing the biggest tax fraud case in United States history. His five-part series for the Global Post, "Telling Swiss Secrets: A Banker's Betrayal," gives the play-by-play of the lead up to the exchange of information, exposes information about Birkenfeld's plea bargain, and explains why Birkenfeld, despite helping the government to get over $780 million from UBS, is still sitting in jail today.

Excellent segment. Thank-you for highlighting Michael Bronner's piece. I hope more information will come out from more whistleblowers regarding more banks. Too bad this story is not getting more attention.
