Swiss financial firm to pay $10.25 mln to avoid U.S. prosecution

WASHINGTON, July 27 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department on Friday said that Switzerland's Mirelis Holding S.A., a financial and asset management firm, will pay $10.25 million to the United States in order to avoid prosecution for tax-related criminal offenses.

In a statement the Justice Department said the non-prosecution agreement and fine were part of an ongoing U.S. crackdown on citizens using Swiss bank accounts to avoid having to pay taxes. (Reporting by Lisa Lambert; editing by Diane Craft)
