JAT Comments:
1. The allegation refusal to provide BSI account statements is odd.  BSI entered the DOJ Swiss Bank Program.  Swiss Bank BSI SA Is First to Get NonProsecution Agreement; Pays $211 Million (Federal Tax Crimes Blog 3/31/15), here.  I thought a key condition of the program was to cooperate and provide documents, as well as testimony.  Moreover, I suppose, the Government can obtain them from the defendants in discovery, that is if the defendants have or have access to them.
2.  According to the allegations in the complaint, the defendants failed to report FBAR reportable accounts for 2010 and 2011, after the father and father-in-law, respectively was indicted in 2010 for failure to file FBARs.  No surrounding facts are pled.  But, I suppose that, in those circumstances, it would be hard for the defendants to assert that they did not know of the FBAR filing obligation and the need to report all reportable accounts.
