Swiss bank UBS was on Wednesday charged with tax fraud in Paris for allegedly helping rich French clients to hide money in Switzerland, a judicial source said. The bank, which was already under investigation for illegal solicitation of customers in France, will now have to pay a total bail of 1.1 billion euros ($1.5 billion), the source told AFP. UBS's Swiss business is suspected of illegally canvassing French customers and setting up dual accounts to hide the movement of capital into Switzerland. The judicial source said the charges relate to money kept in accounts in Switzerland between 2004 and 2012.
