    Wow this is interesting, kinda puzzled though of how the USA has Jurisdiction over Switzerland?, makes me wander if both the UBS and Barclays will suffer the same fate when the Libor scandal goes to trial?.

    It's the US, it thinks it has jurisdiction over the whole of the internet already, so why not the whole world. I suspect they are working on the jurisdiction where the crime took place, rather than that of the criminal. With online gambling, the "crime" takes place on US soil, at the home of the player. It would be the same with illegal tax schemes, with elements of the crime taking place on US soil because it is a US citizen being helped.

    This move is likely to have popular support though, as the rest of us have to pay higher taxes because of the fewer wealthy people that get away with not paying their share. Remember, the wealthy have often benefitted from government funded schemes in order to create their wealth. Some RELY on tapping into government schemes in order to make money from them.

    The UK government are trying similar tactics, and it is proving popular with the masses, many of whom want to see bankers hanged, drawn, and quartered.

    The question is whether this will target companies, or the individuals behind them. One bank shutting down may be aimed at ensuring there is no active corporate entity left to answer charges if this goes to trial, leaving the US to either drop the case, or try going after former executives. They did this with Neteller, but it needed the former execs to stray onto US soil.

    What is really needed here is a thorough investigation right the way to the top by trusty reliable independent investigators, the world market in general is so corrupt it's a breeding ground for deceit, underhand practices, insider trading. I think most people's jaws would drop to actually find out just how few own a majority of the worlds top brands, a world where deliberately bankrupting small companies makes the owners billions via derivatives and put options. What is needed here is full exposure of those bankers that own the banks in question and not just the puppets running them, and even more importantly how they got where they are today, all we are seeing here is some slight pruning of the trees, get the chainsaws out and do it properly ;).

    Of course, nothing stirs public interest up more than seeing greedy rich bastards being done for tax evasion, top of this list is the Rothschild's banking cartel, here we go Panorama, grow some balls and take a look into their world, if a few bankers being done for tax evasion incites rage amongst the general public, wait till they hear what this lot have been doing the past 200+ years or so ;).

    Footnote:- There is a database listing 37 million companies that are the heart of the Stock Exchange, this has been whittled down by intense research to just 147 entities that between them own 40% of the entire stock market's wealth..........

    Like I stated - A few tax evasive cases and the Libor scandal is just a splash in the ocean, get to the source of banking related scandals and remove those in power and the world automatically becomes a better place to live.
