A US judge Monday freed a former UBS executive on $9 million bail while he awaits trial on charges that he helped Americans avoid millions in US taxes, his attorney said.
Raoul Weil, 54, did not enter a plea in the case, but plans to plead "not guilty" before a Florida court at a hearing January 7, said Weil's attorney, Aaron Marcu.
"We are pleased that the court agreed that Mr. Weil should be released on bail," Marcu said in a message. "We look forward to sitting down to work with him on preparing his defense."
