    By JESSICA GRESKO, Associated Press Writer Jessica Gresko, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 32 mins ago.

    MIAMI – The U.S. government and Swiss banking giant UBS AG have reached an agreement in a case seeking names of some 52,000 suspected American tax evaders with billions in secret Swiss accounts, but details may remain under wraps until next week, officials said.

    GOOD! I hope fines, interest payments and penalties as well as restitution to law enforcement are included along with JAIL.

    Some people just don't get it. That's why you keep your money in Carri bean accounts.

    Should have been. I wonder what is the status of this 'investigation'? Did too many influential people make the list and and the "next week" turned in never

    Nahh... i think they ought to do with them exactly what they do with drug dealers...take all their assets and auction off their property. After doing that, no jail time will be required... let them work at McDonald's and Convenience stores like other people with nothing.

    Let them live like the poor... hey, if they're good, they'll rebound, but a taste of poverty would probably be a good thing for these people.
