Page 1 of 1 Subj: National Whistleblowers Center Refutes False Charges Made Against UBS Whistle Date: 2/17/2010 1:58:35 P.M. Central Standard Time From: lmw@whistleblowers.org To: sharon4anderson@aol.com National Whistleblowers Center 3238 P Street NW Washington, D.C. 20007 http://www.whistleblowers.org FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT: Lindsey M. Williams (202) 324-1903 lmw@whistleblowers.org FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE National Whistleblowers Center Refutes False Charges Made Against UBS Whistleblower Washington, D.C. February 17, 2010. Today, the National Whistleblowers Center released evidence regarding the case of UBS whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld, which demonstrates his heroic efforts to expose tax fraud. Attached to the fact sheet prepared by the NWC are scanned original documents related to the illegal UBS tax scandal. "The record shows the Department of Justice's decision to prosecute Mr. Birkenfeld is a farce to say the very least," said Stephen M. Kohn, Executive Director of the National Whistleblowers Center and co- counsel for Mr. Birkenfeld. The evidence includes the original internal e-mails Mr. Birkenfeld sent to his superiors raising concerns and his original internal whistleblower complaint. Also included are letters from U.S. government agencies, which acknowledge Mr. Birkenfeld's disclosures as essential to the case against UBS. In spite of his documented efforts to report the fraud, stand up to his employers and work with government investigations, Mr. Birkenfeld is currently in federal prison. He is the only banker associated with the illegal UBS program to receive a prison sentence. "Mr. Birkenfeld's sentence sends a chilling message to any international banker who may be considering coming forward and bringing similar information to the government," said Lindsey M. Williams, Director of Advocacy and Development at the National Whistleblowers Center. The National Whistleblowers Center is asking members of the public to consider the facts, and TAKE ACTION by supporting the clemency campaign currently underway on behalf of Mr. Birkenfeld.

  7. 7. National Whistleblowers Center - Bradley Birkenfeld Fact Sheet Page 1 of 4 Site Map | Contact enter keywords Home About Us Services Take Action Advocacy Resources Press Room Submit Confidential Report Bradley Birkenfeld Fact Sheet *Please see below for a full list of links and documents. 1. Did Bradley Birkenfeld serve the public interest? <!--[endif]--> Yes. Mr. Birkenfeld’s voluntary disclosures were historic in nature in terms cracking the vault of bank secrecy. His official contributions led to the agreement between the United States and UBS for the payment of $780,000,000.00 in fines and penalties, the creation of an IRS amnesty program, under which 14,700 have come forward and admitted to illegal, secret bank accounts, the recovery of billions of taxpayer dollars by the IRS, and the shut down of the entire $20 billion illegal UBS program that existed to solicit and encourage wealthy Americans to hide their money in secret, offshore accounts. The NY Daily News asserted that "Bradley Birkenfeld deserves a statue on Wall Street, not a prison sentence." 2. How did Mr. Birkenfeld blow the whistle? <!--[endif]--> Mr. Birkenfeld did what whistleblowers do first; as documented in e-mails and correspondence sent within the bank starting in June of 2005 he went to his supervisors at work as soon as he discovered UBS was violating the law. He did this in good faith - not to gain a reward or to turn UBS in to the authorities fix the problems he discovered. He followed all UBS internal compliance procedures and reported his concerns up the chain of command. On May 24, 2006, UBS general counsel closed the investigation, and UBS did nothing to address Mr. Birkenfeld’s complaint. Because UBS’ failed to address his concerns, Mr. Birkenfeld voluntarily resigned in order to end his participation illegal conduct. Although UBS demanded that he continue to keep bank secrets regarding his complaints, he retained outside counsel and began making disclosures to all appropriate government entities. In 2007, Mr. Birkenfeld provided extensive testimony to the Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Internal Revenue Service. In September 2007, frustrated by the inactivity of the Justice Department, Mr. Birkenfeld, through counsel, reached out to the Senate for help, writing, "We have a limited opportunity to change an entire industry designed to evade US taxes. Lets not fiddle while Rome burns." <!--[endif]--> 3. How important was Mr. Birkenfeld’s whistleblowing? The Department of Justice and UBS both agree (Section 15 to Exhibit C of http://www.whistleblowers.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1036 2/17/2010
  8. 8. National Whistleblowers Center - Bradley Birkenfeld Fact Sheet Page 2 of 4 Deferred Prosecution Agreement) that UBS could have solved all problems they properly investigated Mr. Birkenfeld’s complaint. Brad Birkenfeld is a true whistleblower who tried to get UBS to fix the problem. UBS left him no choice but to resign and give up his international banking career. At his sentencing hearing the Court asked the Justice Department prosecutor: “But for Mr. Birkenfeld this scheme would not have been discovered by the U.S. government? answer was clear: “I believe that Your Honor, yes.” This finding was stated multiple times during Mr. Birkenfeld's sentencing hearing. In addition, multiple government agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Comission Internal Revenue Service, and the Senate, have sent letters that point to the information revealed by Mr. Birkenfeld as crucial to the investigation of UBS. <!--[endif]--> 4. Does the fact that Mr. Birkenfeld participated in illegal activity disqualify him as a whistleblower? No. Whistleblower protection laws apply to those who come forward having participated in illegal activity. The entire Department of Justice effort to combat fraud against the government and tax evasion is based on an old Civil War statute that provides protection and rewards for whistleblowers. When passed, Congress knew that participants in the “crimes” would be the key sources of information. Senator Jacob M. Howard, the lead Senate sponsor, endorsed rewarding participants, stating that "setting a rogue to catch a rogue is the safest and most expeditious way I have ever discovered of bringing rogues to justice." Since then, thousands of whistleblowers have come forward under these laws, most of whom directly participated in the underlying frauds. None are known ever to have been prosecuted. The Justice Department’s treatment of Mr. Birkenfeld is unprecedented and undermines important anti-fraud laws. Twenty anti-corruption groups have joined the National Whistleblowers Center in a clemency campaign for Mr. Birkenfeld . <!--[endif]--> 5. Did the Department of Justice tell the truth when they argued that Mr. Birkenfeld should go to prison? No. At his sentencing hearing, the Department of Justice Attorney said that if Mr. Birkenfeld had turned in one of the biggest tax offenders, his former client Igor Olenicoff, in 2007 he would not have been prosecuted. In fact, Mr. Birkenfeld voluntarily released this information in 2007 to the Senate Subcommittee on Investigations and other government agencies.
