On Tuesday and Wednesday, Georg Marti, a former UBS employee, appeared in court in the federal court in Florida and asserts that he conducted meetings with US clients on US soil with Raoul Weil. Georg Marti was a relationship manager based in Zuerich at that time.
Georg Marti resigned the day Martin Liechti, then head of wealth management America, was arrested in the US. After a couple of meeting with the US Department of Justice (DoJ) and the Internal Revenue Services (IRS), Georg Marti accepted to cooperate and received on October 15, 2014, a non-prosecution agreement.
According to Le Temps Georg Marti mentioned that he and his colleagues had to breach the rules in order to reach their targets.
