Geneva Mirabaud under massive US fire

Ron Wyden is a name that the financial center has to remember. The Democratic Senator from the state of Oregon, north of California, is leaving after the CS now go to the Geneva Mirabaud.

Frontal. In what is probably the largest illegal money lawsuit against a US entrepreneur named Robert Brockman, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee calls on the people of Geneva to prove their innocence in the case by October 1st.

Now the honorable bankers on the Rhône are trembling. You should feel the noose tightening around your neck. Because their long-standing customer has become a showcase process for the American captors.

The honorable Mirabauds have expected a lot, they have survived everything so far. The tax case with Cristiano Ronaldo, the corruption case with Juan Carlos.

But then their opponents came from Europe. In the end they are tame. But now they are facing Uncle Sam. Everyone in Helvetia’s banking scene now knows that they are of a completely different caliber.

According to Bloomberg the Mirabaud partners are not aware of any guilt. They refer to the US Justice Department’s indictment against their ex-client Brockman.

Diese mache klar, “that Mr. Brockman went to great lengths to deceive Mirabaud about his real involvement in the accounts held with the bank, none of them were in his name”.

Bank Mirabaud is not accused. But because the senator demands information, the pressure on their top partners increases. What’s next?

Bloomberg reports of a confessor who is cooperating with the Americans.

It is Brockman’s former lawyer who built vehicles for his king-size black money client that landed around a billion at Mirabaud in Switzerland.

How much the US sheriffs are after the Nobel Bank in Geneva is shown by a money lawsuit against Mirabaud. It’s about 78 million dollars, which the Department of Justice (DoJ) challenges the traditional institute.

„That money was held in an account in the name of Edge Capital Investments, an entity that Tamine (der geständige Anwalt, AdR) set up but that Brockman controlled, according to the forfeiture lawsuit“, schreibt die US-Nachrichtenagentur.

According to the DoJ’s damage claim, the repentant lawyer declared that he had “intentionally withheld information from Mirabaud Bank” when setting up the account.

At first glance, that sounds reassuring to the people of Geneva. But the questions that the powerful US Senator is now asking the Mirabauds seem anything but harmless.

„Wyden asked if Mirabaud verified Brockman’s status as a U.S. taxpayer, and if it queried whether he filed reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, required by U.S. law“, hält Bloomberg fest. Der Senator wolle noch mehr.

„The letter also poses several questions about Mirabaud’s compliance with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, which requires overseas financial institutions to report assets held by U.S. account holders.“
