UK Barrister Found Guilty of Tax Fraud & Money Laundering in US Courts

By in

A UK Barrister has been sentenced by a court in the US for enabling an American family to avoid their tax liabilities and foreign bank account reporting requirements, even though he lives and works in the UK.

The Attorney helped his clients conceal USD $14 million in overseas Swiss banks for a long time, encouraging relatives to take cash back to the US in little lumps in travellers checks, or disguised as artwork or jewellery. He additionally organised cash inherited by the families widow to be kept in Switzerland.
