The US sought to make UBS Group AG turn over records on an account in Singapore held by a US citizen, possibly forcing a showdown with the city-state over its bank-secrecy laws and opening a new front against offshore tax evasion beyond Switzerland.

[NEWARK] The US sought to make UBS Group AG turn over records on an account in Singapore held by a US citizen, possibly forcing a showdown with the city-state over its bank-secrecy laws and opening a new front against offshore tax evasion beyond Switzerland.

The Internal Revenue Service asked a federal judge in Miami to force UBS, the largest Swiss bank, to produce records on Ching-Ye Hsiaw, who lives in China. The judge on Wednesday told UBS to show up in court on March 31 to explain why it has refused to supply the account records.
