UBS the wealth management giant was told by the courts to hand over client data to see who was evading tax in the US. They have a court hearing in the US this .ing Monday as they refused to give the US authorities the data that they wanted. The Swiss are keen to keep its secrecy laws intact and the Swiss judiciary have .e out and said that it would be against their laws if UBS gave the US authorities the data. Bradley Associates analysts believe that this stance is causing tension between the two governments and diplomatic ties are now being tested.
