Multiple outlets are reporting that on February 2, 2015, three years after his indictment in the Southern District of New York, Swiss banker Roger Keller was arrested at the Frankfurt airport. On January 3, 2012, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York indicted Wegelin Bank, Keller, Urs Frei, and Michael Berlinka, for assisting customers in evading taxes. In 2013, Wegelin pleaded guilty and agreed to cease operations. Keller awaits extradition to the U.S. to face trial, while Frei and Berlinka remain fugitives.
